3. I work in retail (large store), and increasingly am experiencing customers either phoning the store asking that you find the items they want and have them waiting for them at the Service/checkout area, because they just simply don't have time. Would you ever do that?

4. Referring back to the third question, some customers have become extremely demanding in expecting this sort of personal service. Yet some stores that you enter - do not seem to have associates floating around the store to assist customers - they are simply doing tasks. There seems to be a wide range of shoppers expectations. What do you expect?

I expect personal service. I am spending my money,

My time is more important, if a store wants my money, I expect them to have the personal service I want, the products I want in stock, be able to pricematch and not make me wait at any point.

I understand retail associates are not highly paid and I appreciate their assistance but understand they are one person and can assist one person at a time. It is not their fault that the stores are so busy this time of year.
