SECRET SHOPPER – SHOPPING, REVIEWS AND MUCH MORE

Secret Shopper

I just love shopping!

WHAT IS SECRET SHOPPER?

Secret Shopper is the title of a new category on my blog.   This short post is to introduce you to what I intend to write about.

Basically, I love shopping, any kind of shopping, clothes especially but also homeware and food.  I use to go shopping everything week and would never come home empty handed.  Even if I did not buy anything for me I still had to buy something, whether it was a birthday present or just a little thank you present.

That said I must admit my days of waiting for the shops to open at 9.00, and staying out until they close and have long gone.  Previously I had visited every shop in the high street whether they sold what I wanted or not.  I am now more choosy as to which shops and shopping malls I visit.

Nowadays we have much more choice as to where we shop, how we shop and what time of the day we shop.

I have some topics which I am going to base my posts upon.  To give you a bit of a taster I will explain them very briefly:-

THE SHOPPER’S EXPERIENCE

In Secret Shopper I want to write about the ‘shoppers experience’.  By this I mean the anything from ease of parking to changing rooms.   I recently spent a day in Oxford Street trying on clothes (for the purposes of research!).  This is my first post in this topic, and will be available soon.

SHOPPING CENTRES AND HIGH STREETS

In future posts I will be looking at High Streets, Shopping Centre and Retail parks.  I think they can all offer different benefits and I want to show what is best about each of them.

ONLINE

Nowadays we do a lot of our shopping online.  Amongst other topics, I want to look how easy websites are to navigate.

REVIEWS

This section of Secret Shopper is still in the developmental stage.  I keep changing my mind what to do so I might start out down one avenue and at the crossroads go in another direction.  Basically this section is for reviews, and it might be a product review if I find a particularly good product.  Alternatively, it could also be of a review of the service received in a shop/restaurant or a stay in a hotel.  I intend to keep each review brief and to do a monthly roundup.  However, If I find an outstanding product or receive exceptional service that I think you need to know about sooner rather than later I will make an exception.  Like I say this might change if I feel I am not going in the right direction.

I have lots of other ideas which I hope to share with you in the near future – I just love shopping so much!
