This issue isn’t really recognised by the public but is very serious and should be addressed and known about. This issue is important to me because in the world we live in today, society isn’t as safe as people would like it to be.

Robberies may occur

If you manage to have some money to buy expensive items, you should really be careful of the society you’re in. If you’re in quite a busy environment (Stratford, Oxford Street etc.) do you really think it’s wise to shop alone with valuables? For example, a group of moped-riding robbers raided a luxury jewellery shop with knives in a busy shopping centre in the middle of London.

Lose your money

Losing your money is the worst feeling to have, whether it’s physically losing it or mentally (buying something over-priced). Having a friend or family member may support you in keeping all your items safe and stop you from losing valuables or expensive goods.

Spend too much

If you are shopping for expensive items, you may over-spend or spend all your money at once on unnecessary items that won’t be used regularly. To prevent this, you could try only taking a certain amount of money with you, so you’re not tempted to waste any.


Even though shopping alone is quite nice sometimes to get your head around things and have space, having an acquaintance is to talk to and have opinions on clothing is better. It is also much safer.
