Community wardens visited Tesco in Windsor on Tuesday to offer shoppers crime prevention tips.
Wardens from the Royal Borough's Community Safety Partnership set up a table in the Dedworth Road store with leaflets and gave customers advice on how to protect themselves.
Property marking kits, including invisible UV pens, were also given out.
Andy Aldridge, senior community warden, was pleased at the success of the project.
"It went really well," he said. "We ran out of kits, they went within an hour.
"It was really popular, especially with elderly people."
The initiative runs in partnership with Thames Valley Police. Sessions have been running across Windsor and Maidenhead for a year, with wardens giving a few talks a week.
