It’s always heart-wrenching when a close family member passes. Sharing the final moments with a person we love can be a small respite in a truly difficult situation.

This is a fun one! It’s also a quirky reminder that many of the most fondly remembered service stories are the ones that come out of left field. This story certainly fits the bill, and it is bound to inspire you to take some extra time to surprise a valued customer every once in a while.

It doesn’t take a slew of consumer data (although we’ve shared plenty of it) to support the argument that your regular customers are your rock. As such, taking care of them is not just the right thing to do—it’s also good for business.

Consider the case of regular Gaylord Opryland hotel customer Christina McMenemy, who stayed at the resort three years in a row for the annual BlissDom conference.

What a difference extra special customer service made to a child

Service Rep Saves the Day

Losing a favorite toy feels devastating to a young child. Long time Lego fan Luka Apps spent all of his Christmas money on a Ninjago (Lego ninja) named Jay XZ.

Against his dad’s advisement, he brought his Ninjago on a shopping trip … and lost it.

Luka wrote a letter to Lego explaining his loss and assuring the Lego staff that he would take extra-special care of his action figure if they sent him another one.

The response he received from a Lego customer support representative named Richard was nothing short of amazing. Richard told Luke that he had talked to Sensei Wu (a Ninjago character), writing:

He told me to tell you, “Luka, your father seems like a very wise man. You must always protect your Ninjago minifigures like thedragons protect the Weapons of Spinjitzu!”

Sensei Wu also told me it was okay if I sent you a new Jay and told me it would be okay if I included something extra for you because anyone that saves their Christmas money to buy the Ultrasonic Raider must be a really big Ninjago fan.

So, I hope you enjoy your Jay minifigure with all his weapons. You will actually have the only Jay minifigure that combines 3 different Jays into one! I am also going to send you a bad guy for him to fight!

Just remember, what Sensei Wu said: keep your minifigures protected like the Weapons of Spinjitzu! And of course, always listen to your dad.

It’s so rare to see such a thoughtful, creative response to a distraught customer that this story went viral, which was well deserved!

Customers of a business can be new ones or current ones returning to buy more. The significance of good customer service can be shown in financial terms, as it costs at least five times as much to win a new customer as it does to keep a current one. Much of the profits of most businesses rely on repeat custom.

Memorable Service Experience

 

 

I was after a luxury item a pair of shoes worth £150, not in the sale. I asked for my size but upon trying one shoe was far too loose. I enquired if I could get them anywhere else or can they get another pair. It was a high end shoe retail outlet.

To that I was told they had no idea and I needed to ring customer services. I rang them and they Provided me with a list of the shops that had them. Please note these shoes are NOT a necessity but I liked them.  I thought for a moment I was on candid camera for bad service.
