Kroger X: Inside the Customer Experience at Kroger [Special Report]
For retailers, especially in the hyper-competitive grocery sector, everything rises and falls on the customer experience (CX).
- Can shoppers quickly and easily navigate stores?
- Do employees treat shoppers kindly and professionally?
- Are shoppers happy with prices, private labels, produce, and other make-or-break factors?
- And, especially today, are shoppers satisfied with their digital experiences—from mobile apps to grocery pickup?
All critical questions about CX, questions that ultimately determine winners and losers across the retail industry.
Inside the CX at Kroger
Over the coming weeks, Field Agent will provide in-depth looks at the CX across a few prominent retailers. We start at Kroger. With 2,758 stores and multiple banners to its name, Kroger is nothing short of a grocery powerhouse.
But how does Kroger stack up on CX?
From January 3-8, 2020, Field Agent audited and/or mystery shopped 61 Kroger stores across the country. We asked agents to inspect everything from in-store navigation to online ordering, employee courtesy to checkout times.
We also ran nearly identical studies at Target and Walmart, to help draw comparisons from one retailer to another.
