Two big reasons why retail store owners need Markel Specialty’s affordable retail business insurance.

1. If your inventory is ever damaged or stolen and you have inadequate insurance, you can lose money and time that you may never recover.

2. If a customer or someone else sues you for an injury, an accident, or a product defect, you’ll have legal expenses and lots of stress, even if their claim is not valid.

For a brick and mortar retail store owner like yourself, there is a way to minimize these losses—Markel Specialty’s retail insurance.

By combining workers compensation, commercial general liability, commercial property, and other coverages vital to protecting your assets, Markel Specialty’s insurance for retail businesses provides the coverage you need at a more affordable price. This combination also earns you a 10% multi-policy discount.*
