What is a Store Check?

A Store Check is a method where a person visits a store and evaluates the situation there based on a checklist to verify hard facts such as adherence to corporate identity, appearance, product presentation, and other aspects.

Why are Store Checks important?

Store Checks offer objective insights into the presentation and operational climate of a business, adherence to agreements with manufacturers, and help in optimizing the customer experience.

Store Checks are especially useful for manufacturers who have agreed on certain product presentations with retailers, to control adherence to these agreements.

What aspects are checked during a Store Check?

Aspects that can be checked include adherence to corporate identity, appearance at the point of sale, product presentation, signage, pricing, stocking, cleanliness, lighting, room temperature, staff numbers, and service quality.

How can crowdsourcing be used for Store Checks?

Crowdsourcing allows for recruiting a large number of individuals to perform Store Checks in various stores. This can lead to broader geographical coverage and a variety of perspectives. Participants, often regular customers, use mobile apps or online platforms to share their observations and ratings. This approach can be cost-effective and enables timely and extensive data for the analysis of store operations and customer experience.
