Why I Like Dealing With Local Businesses

  Menzie 19:30 10 Dec 2019

There's a local electronics store that I buy all my car equipment from. They do the sales and installation of everything they sell. They are a little bit more expensive than larger retailers sometimes.

Over two years ago I purchased a dashcam for my vehicle. It was one of those units with 2 cameras covering the front and rear of the vehicle.

A week ago the camera stopped working, it just kept rebooting. I went to see them and they contacted the manufacturer.

A few days later I got a call telling me to come in for the replacement. I went in and they put a brand new camera in, set it up, tested and away I went.

I wasn't expecting that, it was the first thing I've bought from them that ever broke. With the level of service received I feel like I'm in good hands.

*"I feel like I'm in good hands."

You obviously are. Your storekeeper understands one of the golden rules of successful retailing - build brand loyalty and you'll always get a living. It's an art, and those who practice it deserve to succeed.
