What is mystery shopping & auditing?

Mystery Shoppers remain unannounced and act as a customer in a specific retail environment. It is important that information gathered is accurate, unbiased and DETAILED. It is also vital to stay ‘in character’ so that we achieve a completely natural, unbiased review of the specific location and staff.

Auditors will announce themselves at each location as agents of Market Recon (acting on behalf of a specific client). Auditing functions can range from simple data collection such as price checks to more detailed and thorough audits.
