VIDEO: No One Complains Anymore!


According to a recent survey, 81% of people who experienced a problem on their last shopping trip didn't complain about it! Having people stay silent is a big problem for companies, because they lose the opportunity to rectify the situation, which means those non-complainers are less likely to recommend the store and will spend less money there.

In this short video, our experts discuss how bad a store's service has to be before they'll complain.

What about you, readers? Do you voice your anger when you have a bad shopping experience? Or do you silently take it, letting the slight fester inside you? Tell us your methods, in the comments below!

My take is that I will complain to the on-duty supervisor. If my complaint is ignored, that establishment will never see me again, and they will wind up with a bad review on Yelp. If it is handled insufficiently, then I will likely move up the chain; but if an establishment doesn't train its first-line supervisors that customer complaints are VERY important, then I have no need to go there again. Eventually - and in not a very long period of time - they won't be there anyway.
