Retail Market Research Services 

Our retail market research company offers a variety of point of purchase (POP) market research options to help you understand the customer path to purchase including:

  • Intercept Surveys: Intercept surveys offer in-the-moment feedback, by interviewing customers as soon as they exit your store. These short interviews aim to target specific product purchases or inquire about the customer’s overall shopping experience.
  • Mystery Shopping: Mystery shopping takes the mystery out of your customer’s shopping experience. With professionally trained shoppers, your retail location will receive primary data on various factors such as store cleanliness, friendliness of staff, and product offerings compared to competitors.
  • Customer Satisfaction (CSAT) Surveys: Retail customer surveys provide a greater understanding to drivers for store visits, where else customers are shopping, return visit and loyalty motivations, and improvements to better serve customers.
  • Shop-Along Surveys: Rather than surveying someone as they leave a retail or grocery store, shop-alongs involve an interviewer accompanying customers as they browse the store for things to buy. The purpose of a shop-along is to uncover thoughts, influences, preferences, and motivations when customers are shopping for a product.
  • Customer Experience (CX) Research: Is your market share slipping? Are you losing more existing customers more quickly? CX research can help. A customer experience survey for a retail location showcases exactly what customers are looking for and then implementing these changes to provide it. It understands how different customer touchpoints impact larger metrics.
