Customer service is everything these days! With the retail game in Canada being so competitive, stores must strive to provide shoppers with a unique product, at the right price, alongside superior customer service in order to generate loyalty. Despite the importance of customer service, it’s hard to come by with every retailer. More often than none, a retailer’s level of customer service is aligned with their price point… however, this is not always the case. We’ve lined up our picks for a variety of retailers with the best customer service.
When was the last time you walked into a Sephora and left empty handed?

Customer perks like a rewards program, free makeovers, and exclusive sales add up to an impressive and immersive shopping experience difficult for other beauty retailers to duplicate.
If you haven’t stepped foot into a Frank and Oak store before, you’re missing out! This retail experience combines a traditional (but laid back,) retail store with a community space. Here, you can sip on an espresso at your leisure or grab a haircut and beard trim. Frank and Oak’s in-store operations seamlessly blend art and technology to create an eclectic and personalized shopping environment for customers. If you’re looking for a more customized service, easily book an appointment online for a one-hour in-store session with a personal stylist.
We love Well.ca! This online retailer of all things health, wellness, baby and beauty-related has a never-ending inventory of products. Well.ca’s pricing is comparable to (if not better than,) most chain drugstores and health food stores, but eliminates the fuss of having to investigate product labels for key ingredients or restrictions. Shipping times are fast and efficient with email notifications every step of the way. When we called Well.ca’s Customer Care phone number to remove an item from our online order, we received a pick-up instantly from a real live customer service representative. Can you believe it? What service!
