SUGGESTIONS Entry gate guards should get more training on behaviour. Increase the range of other company product, especially in apparels and food items. Do not put rotten vegetables and fruits. There should be some refreshment inside the store. Increase the sound of announcements more than songs so that one can hear clearly the offers. Make some arrangements at any new schemes or offers such as queue system so that the crowed can be controlled. Increase footwear variety. Big Bazaar should appoint better staff.
RECOMMENDATIONS Delivery & baggage counter should be outside the store. There should be a carpet on the floor of the gift section so that the probability of breaking of fragile items may decrease. There should be no security hassles before entering the store. Home delivery should provide with area limitations. Show only trial items There should be a delivery desk so that Customer receives the goods from delivery desk and does not have to carry the same. Don’t seal the poly bags as it can be reused There should be a customer care number to solve any problems faced by customers. Allow the carrying of water bottles in the store.
