Why do clothing stores need insurance?

Burglary is a common threat for retailers, which makes insurance crucial for clothing shops. Small business insurance covers unexpected costs from robberies, lawsuits from customer accidents, fires, and employee injuries. Some policies, such as workers' compensation, may be required by law.
