What Ever Happened To Service?

Customer service consistently gets poor marks from shoppers at major retailers and restaurants, according to a study released last month by WSL Strategic Retail, a consulting firm. Only 66 percent of retail customers were satisfied with their shopping experience….
Among the top complaints are rude staffs, dirty stores, long checkout lines and employees who aren't familiar with merchandise. Few of the major retailers are finding success in these areas, the study says.
In other words… customer service is falling by the wayside.

FACT: 68% of customers who stop doing business with a company do so because of perceived indifference.

FACT: Customers who encounter poor service tell an average of 11 other people about their bad experience.

FACT: Courting new business can cost up to five times more than strengthening relationships with current clients.
