A Cute Way to Reference Mystery Shopping February 17, 2011

Posted by Ann Michaels & Associates in Uncategorized.

Every year, the second grade teacher at my children’s school has a “Star Student” week – each week a student is highlighted. They get to bring in favorite items, pictures of themselves and their families, and at the end of the week the parents and siblings come to the classroom to be interviewed by classmates.

The first year I went, I wanted to think of a way to make mystery shopping sound fun and exciting to these 7 and 8 year olds. When the teacher found out what I did, she was very excited and used it as a good learning tool.

I explained that mystery shoppers go to all kinds of places of business to make sure that the employees are doing their work, that they are polite and helpful, and basically being good employees. The teacher ran with this idea and explained to the kids that even adults have to follow the rules, and be polite to others.

Of course, the kids thought it was cool and referred to mystery shopping as being the “Polite Police” and “Service Spies.” It let them know too that even as adults, we still have to follow rules and act right, even though we don’t have parents and teachers watching us.

Needless to say, I did get quite a few phone calls from parents and even a couple of the teachers wanting to know how to become a mystery shopper! That always happens, doesn’t it?
Until next time…happy shopping!
