Let's start with a fundamental setup-- a Master and Sub-Master system. State your store has 4 primary locks: the front door, back door, workplace door, and product case. You desire your supervisor to open all of the doors, your shift manager to open the front door, receiving door, and merchandise case, and your other employees to just open the merchandise case. You will need a master key system with two sub-masters under it. The master key would go to the supervisor, one sub-master would go to your shift managers, and the other sub-master would go to other workers.
