The Night Owl
Partners,By now your managers have already communicated to each of you our new Cus-tomer Service initiative. It is our
"Stop, Drop, and Walk"
Here is how it works....
Whenever a customer approaches you and asks for an item location,STOP whatever you are working on, make eye contact, greet, smile, and listen tothe customer.
Whatever you are working on, either stocking a case or pulling a cart,drop what it is you have on hand and....
Walk the customer to the item location. After the customer thanks you for helping them find the product, your responsemust finish with "My Pleasure".We all have done an outstanding job over the last couple of years on things suchas SPPH, Inventory Management, and Shrink to name a few, but all of thesethings will not matter, if we do not have the most important part of our businesscoming back. Our customers!Just wanted to take the time to wish you and your family a Blessed and HappyHoliday Season! My sincere thanks to all of you for a job well done on getting usready for the holidays. Looking forward to a great New Year and thank you foryour hard work and dedication!Thanks,Mike MenchacaGrocery Director– Border Region
