UK Customer Satisfaction Index 2014 for food & grocery is based around individual retailers and provides a highly detailed, data-rich overview of a retailer's customers, drawing on a nationwide survey of 6,000 shoppers each year.
Measure and rank your performance in customer satisfaction in the sector and assess how this has changed using six years of history (2009-14).
Includes ratings for price, range, quality, service, convenience, ambience, layout and facilities. Use these to understand strengths and weaknesses.
Identifies the biggest CSI winners and losers in food & grocery this year, highlighting those that pose the greatest threat to your business.
While 2013 marked a turning point in the grocery sector, with discount grocer Aldi within a hair's breadth of upmarket Waitrose, in 2014 we have seen the latter open up a sizeable gap of 19 points. Waitrose has topped the rankings for range, quality, service, ambience and layout.
The Co-op group has achieved the lowest score in this year's grocery CSI, as well as the lowest score out of all retailers across all sectors. While the profile of the retailer's estate, geared toward smaller-format stores and top-up shopping, does not lend itself well to loyalty, there are areas where the retailer should perform far better.
Satisfaction among grocery shoppers in general has declined in 2014, with the average score falling from 118 in 2013 to 117 in 2014. While the drop is small, it represents the second consecutive year of decline in the sector as shoppers become more fickle and less loyal to one particular retailer.
