Grocery store insurance is an important part of operating a successful business. As careful as you are to protect your customers and employees, accidents still happen. The right insurance coverage can let you move forward with confidence, helping to ensure that you can recover quickly.
When most people think about going to the grocery store, they do not imagine injuries or lawsuits. But as a grocery store owner, you know better; accidents can happen, and people can get hurt, no matter how careful you are. And those people can file a lawsuit that could ruin your business. That's why it's so important to carry proper insurance coverage to protect your company from liability. With the right grocery store insurance, you can operate your store in confidence, knowing it can help your business recover.

Grocery Store Insurance Options
Insurance for supermarkets and grocery stores comes in a variety of options designed to address specific risks. Common insurance policies for grocery stores include the following:
General Liability Insurance
Many of the financial risks faced by small and mid-sized businesses come from third parties. Anytime a customer sustains an injury on your property or due to a mistake made by an employee, there is the potential for a lawsuit. Such lawsuits can be financially devastating, for any business. General liability insurance can help mitigate the financial impact of lawsuits from third parties.
General liability also usually provides protection if a competitor sues you for libel or slander, as well as damage done to the property of third parties by your company, such as damage to customer's car that is caused by a shopping cart.
Business Owner's Policy
For some grocery stores, it may be most cost-effective to bundle general liability coverage with commercial property insurance in a business Owner's policy (BOP). Having commercial property coverage in addition to general liability offers a number of advantages, especially for a grocery store. Commercial property coverage can help to absorb the financial impact of loss and damage to your commercial property, including your store and your inventory.
Most state laws require any businessowner with employees to carry workers' compensation insurance. The workers' compensation coverage options offered through AmVenture can help you with these insurance requirements and help protect your company and employees when someone gets hurt on the job.
If your grocery store owns, leases, or uses one or more automobiles for deliveries, pickups, or any business-related purpose, having a commercial auto policy could help minimize the cost associated with accidents and damage to those vehicles, as well as damage to other people's property and medical bills. Required in many states, commercial auto insurance can help grocery stores that rely on their commercial vehicles operate safely and effectively, now and in the future.
Cybercriminals are always looking for opportunities to compromise customer data. Should your store be victimized by such criminals and a customer file a lawsuit against you, cyber liability coverage can lessen the financial impact to your company.
