I took my son shopping yesterday, he is home on Christmas leave from the U.S. Army. Every store we went to we asked about a military discount. I was pleasantly surprised at how many offered that to our U.S. soldiers. We did receive one "NO" - I went out to Facebook this morning and looked up every single store we shopped at and posted either a Thank You for your consideration of our Armed Forces or a "Shame On You" for not offering a discount (large movie theater chain). I've already heard back from 2 of them including the theater chain; one thanking my family for his service and the other appears to be trying to get to the bottom of the situation - which I appreciate.
He flew home on U.S. Airways in his uniform and was bumped to First Class from Philadelphia to Chicago - I also went out and thanked them for that and promised they have gained a loyal customer.
The power of Facebook is incredible and any business who is not monitoring the activity on their Business Page is losing out to potentional opportunities to make the customers happy, satisified and coming back.
