Welcoming New Network Participants

by Hayley Silver •

Last quarter, almost 350 merchants started using the BizRate Ratings & Customer Feedback Platform. In this post, I’d like to introduce you to 10 of them. What struck me as most compelling about this list of 10 merchants is that many of them have been in business for years and years. In fact, one such merchant, Meijer, was founded in 1934 and continues to operate as a multi-products retailer in the Midwest. Another recent addition to our network is Skates On Haight, based in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco; their About Us page states that they started out “as a tiny hole in a wall with a cardboard counter and a shoebox for a cash register.”

That retailers who have been building their businesses for decades use our customer listening tools says more about the value of the feedback platform than we could ever say ourselves. Please join me in welcoming these 10 stores plus almost another 340 to our ever growing network!
