Most of the time, we as customers donít think about the sales associates unless there is something wrong, the shelves aren't stocked, the display is a mess, or they can never be found when you need assistance. The sales associates are there to help you and they are often under-appreciated. Working long hours for little pay, standing on their feet all day, cleaning up other peoples messes, and dealing with the creepy and crabby customers is not a dream job but come Black Friday they are all there ready to take on the crowds.
For the past 6 years, I've worked in retail at a few different places. I could tell you many stories of weird, grumpy, or overly friendly customers. But the best customers are the ones who are polite and understanding. These are the customers that I will tell about the coupons or the special deals.
So here are a few tips to keep in mind to make you the best customer on Black Friday.
The main thing to remember when being the best customer is to show them respect and you will get the best deals they can offer.
This year make a point to think of others, they are there to help but kindness goes a long way. Remember to be patient; they are moving as fast as they can. Know what items you want so that you can get in and out as quickly as possible. This will cut down on the crowds and the amount of assistance you might need from them. If you are having difficulty and need the help of a sales associate, pay attention to your tone of voice. Being calm and polite will get you a better outcome. And when you finally make it to the register and the cashier looks tired and worn out, greet them with a smile, it might just brighten their day.
