A satisfied customer can save your business. The other day, I had an experience that changed the way I felt about Best Buy. In the past, I had a rather unsatisfying experience with Best Buy. I left the store frustrated and unwilling to return. This past week, however, my brother asked me to run to my local Best Buy to help him pick up an order he had already placed on a T.V. I was, of course, willing to help. When I arrived and told the manager who I was, he was as helpful as can be. Even though there were problems and complications with the order, requiring me to stick around for about ten minutes longer than I expected to, I was treated in a way that really made me feel valuable as a customer. I left the store that day with a new sense of devotion towards Best Buy.
