Retail Lineup Frustration Drives Customers Away
It’s no secret that lineups drive customers away and cost retailers money. In fact, 75% of retailers report losing business to wait-related issues. According to a whopping 70% of retailers, 5 minutes or less is how long the average customer will wait to be served before abandoning the purchase and leaving the store. This is literally money walking out the door, and customers who may never return.
This is exactly the problem that WaitWell solves. Whether it’s a lineup at a big box retail store, a pharmacy or a bike shop, if your waiting for service happens at your store, WaitWell can help to make sure those customers don’t give up on their purchase.
