Exchange shoppers invited to 'Sound Off' Aug. 4 - 25

By Army & Air Force Exchange Service Public Affairs

The Army & Air Force Exchange Service is constantly seeking opportunities to improve on the Exchange benefit. As part of this effort, the Department of Defense's oldest and largest Exchange service relies on an ongoing Customer Satisfaction Index to provide localized, real time snapshots of how Exchange facilities are improving the value of the support provided to military and their families.

The survey, which addresses customer service, pricing, sales associate availability, merchandise assortment and many more key issues, is administered at one-fourth of Exchange main stores twice a year.

JB Charleston shoppers' opportunity to participate in the 2012 Customer Satisfaction Index is coming to the Exchange Aug. 4 through 25. During this time, troops and their families are encouraged to visit the Exchange to provide feedback on locally available services. Beyond improving the Exchange benefit, shoppers who participate will also receive a coupon worth $5 off their next purchase at the Exchange.

"We want to hear from as many JB Charleston shoppers as possible," said Common Orris, Charleston's Army & Air Force Exchange general manager. "Efforts like the CSI are critical to not only improving the shopping experience, but also bolstering the dividend the Exchange annually delivers to the community as healthy exchange operations produce greater returns for military quality of life programs."
