As mask wearing becomes mandatory in shops, a chart that enables shop staff to identify the mood of shoppers is being made available for free by retail experts Uncrowd.
The at-a-glance chart, downloadable from www.uncrowd.uk, maps thirty-two eye moods to enable staff to diagnose and pre-empt potential problems.
Moods range from ‘queue-jumped’ to ‘WTF’.
Uncrowd co-founder and CEO Richard Hammond said: “Good retailers can read their customers like a book, but if their mouths are hidden behind masks, it’s a bit harder to work out what they’re thinking and feeling. Our at-a-glance guide should help to check the mood of a customer.”
“2020 vision was supposed to mean perfect eyesight. This year, with the pandemic and mask wearing, it’s taken on a slightly different meaning.”Richard Hammond co-founder and CEO of Uncrowd
