How To Make A Customer Complaint For A Product (sample letter)

DON’T THROW MONEY IN THE GARBAGE WHEN YOU HAVE A LEGITIMATE CUSTOMER COMPLAINT   Your grocery budget is important as should be the products you spend your money on an expect a certainly level of quality from. Lodging a customer complaint is not new but the way we communicate complaints to companies has changed over the years. Not everyone has a computer and not everyone is interested in making a phone call or writing a letter. The good news is that companies offer various ways to contact them which appeals to all generations of shoppers. My mother-in-law for example is a phone call kind of gal and that’s the way she rolls. She’s also the customer who will go into a bank instead of using online banking. On the other hand I’m an online banking customer and would rather do a live chat or send an email into customer service if I had a customer complaint. Options are important for all levels of customer service to appeal to the masses of consumers buying products in our grocery stores. Consumer help is always a phone call, email or live chat away if you have a product you’ve purchased but aren’t satisfied […]

SNACK ATTACKS HAPPEN TO EVERYONE AND BEING PREPARED IS GOOD FOR YOUR HEALTH AND BUDGET   Hey CBB Fans!! There’s a huge Back To School Contest Alert at the bottom of this post Just for my Readers! Whenever I read a back to school article I automatically think about the little kiddies going to elementary school so today I wanted to address, all students. Plus, consider snacks not only for at school but as after school snacks as well especially when studying. What I want to stress before I start this post about school snacks is that we all have our own definition of healthy so keep that in mind with the snacks I’m sharing. These are snacks I’d send with our son to school and snacks I took to University when I was a student. I also want you to consider your grocery budget as it may differ from mine or someone else reading this post. Buy what fits in your budget but aim to keep snacks as healthy as you can. Students from Junior Kindergarten to University all need to eat which means bringing a lunch which would be the optimal frugal way. Some students may have meal […]

YOU NEVER KNOW WHO YOU WILL BUMP INTO AT THAT GROCERY STORE   YES, you will meet them all and perhaps you fit many of the models of grocery shoppers I will be talking about today in hopes of helping you understand more about the depths of marketing and self-awareness. When grocery stores work on their marketing plans part of that process involves catering to the different types of grocery shoppers that visit their stores every single day. Marketing teams explore all facets of shoppers because they want to make sure they capture them and keep them coming back for more. This is how money is made all over the world. The reason for this is because different personalities tend to shop differently whether they buy more or less based on the way they take-on the grocery shopping experience. Keep in mind that grocery shoppers may shop based on their generation as well their likes. I read a recent article that said there were 4 types of grocery shoppers. Consider both the Baby Boomers and Generation X who may have more disposable income since one may be retired or are living near or debt free and the other at home […]

Common Cooking Mistakes You Can Easily Avoid : The GGC 2018 #2 Aug 6-12

Cooking mistakes may lead to food waste which is a big problem in Canada an around the world.   With so many people suffering from starvation it’s important to keep in mind that the food on your plate is food that someone else would love to eat. That doesn’t mean if you don’t like something that you have to eat it but to be cautious about the way you meal plan, prepare food and portion size. The average Canadian consumer throws out an estimated 170 kilograms of food a year Canada wastes so much food that a researcher likens it to tossing a quarter of your groceries away when you leave the supermarket. Source Just recently we were at my sister-in-law’s house for dinner which was amazing as always and before we left she offered us leftovers. She has the tendency to make far more food than needed but I think that’s just so she can send it home with us. We’re fine with that though however she did mention that she has a large grocery bill which led us to discuss a few things about her food planning which I will talk about down below. Another thing she did […]
