Q 1) Does this promotion campaign reward loyal customers? Explain. Ans:-

The concept of sabse saste 5 din was started by kishore biyani to convert most customer into loyalty customer; they did this by using the market concept of market skimming by giving them huge discount. Previously Big bazaar was not offering any reward to its loyal customers. But from September last year the Kishore Biyani-led Future Group, the country's largest retailer has tied up with Payback, Germany's largest loyalty solution provider and started an customer loyalty program called PAYBACK INDIA card in which customers having the Big bazaar payback loyalty card will be given a credit point 1 on purchase of sale of goods worth Rs 40 which will be equivalent of Rs 0.25 saving. The customer can redeem their points at any of the 1,500 Future group store and will not be tied to the point of purchase. In this programme, the ability to collect and redeem points is vastly enhanced. Customers who want to redeem their points can do so at Ezone stores to buy a colour television or at Pantaloons to buy a T-shirt, also once they have earned a good amount of points they would be rewarded with gift vouchers. The payback card also allows the customers to earn points from ICICI Bank, HPCL, Future bazaar, pantaloons,, home town furnitures, brand factory etc.

Q 2) What would be average daily-sales during the campaign, or the total sales achieved over the 4-day period? Ans:-

Last year the annual turnover of big bazaar at Mumbai central was 80 cores of which Sabse saste 5 din contributed 5 cores. This year at Mumbai central mall there was a problem due to which the electronic section was closed down as a result the average sales during the Sabse saste 5 din went down as compared to last year but overall it was able to achieve the target set by it. Total sales of big bazaar this year was 3 cores and 15 lakhs. And average daily sales of big bazaar was around 60-65 lakhs

Many times people wanted specific product and they were told that the product is out of stock or there is no person to bring it from store. Improper display The arrangement of product was also not proper, many times best offer products got hidden behind useless products. Also the staff member were handling product in a very raw way as a result of that many products got damage. Many times they put heavy products on delicate products because of that the products get damage. Crowd management Crowd management was one of the worst department which was managed. There is no proper queue system. People are roaming just like in fish market. Also there is long waiting for trolley. People were also not satisfied with customer service. Many times their normal questions are also not getting answered. It was raising dissatisfaction in their mind. Many time people take wrong advantage of the crowed like stealing of goods

Many time because of rush people handled products badly and it damaged the goods

Improper utilization of ability If on one counter person is able to attend all customer efficiently then also they employee 2 to 3 on that place which cause in under utilization of recourses.
