Staff at Dewsons Doubleview have been busy putting the "super" in supermarket. They've just scooped a top customer service award for the way the look after shoppers across the Stirling area.
Donna House said the independent supermarket fitted in nicely between Coles in Scarborough and Action in Innaloo, especially since it had expanded its fresh produce section that enabled people to pick up olives and antipasto along with their baked beans.
"We try to get to know customers by name while the boys take their shopping to their car", she said. "While you now can't really go to the bank and get a personalised service, we stress that here.
Older people in particular love it. We want people to leave their problems at home for a little while."
The Scarborough Beach Road store is open seven days a week, but WA trading regulations mean that it can only employ 10 staff at a time.
Jonathan Winchester, managing director of Shopper Anonymous, said Doubleview had been given the Gold Service Award ahead of nearly 50 other Dewsons in WA and more than 700 other independent supermarkets across Australasia.
