Owners and managers know that they are prominent members of the local community where their stores operate. Stores are often in high traffic areas where local residents come and go picking up needed items (particularly during a pandemic).
This provides a great opportunity to let customers and community members know of your commitment to the local community and responsible retailing.
This brings us to our final best practice #16
Be a Responsible Retailer: Get Involved in Your Local Community.
There are so many ways to engage in local community activities -- sponsoring a local sports team or civic club, offering promotional items for community fundraisers and engaging with community leaders in discussions about local issues.
Posting store policies and store retailing practices let everyone know that your store is committed to being a responsible member of the community. If your store is following all 16 We Card Responsible Retailing Best Practices, those in your community should know as this is a significant commitment to taking all the right steps.
