With Thanksgiving around the corner, U.S. shoppers are flocking to grocery stores to find the ingredients they need to make delicious, home cooked meals. But not all food markets are created equal. Some are perfect for finding fresh, organic produce while others have a wonderfully wide selection of specialty foods.
Wherever you are, the reviews you share on Google Maps help others discover great places to go to buy their favorite foods. Here are a few tips for writing helpful grocery store reviews.
Describe the produce
Is the selection always filled with beautifully fresh fruits and vegetables? Or would you recommend going somewhere else for that? Do they sell a wide variety of organic produce? Is it locally sourced? These are just a few questions to think about when in the fruit and veggie aisle.
For many people, price is an important deciding factor when it comes to deciding where to shop. If two grocery stores in your area sell similar quality products at notably different prices, include that info in your review.
Explain what makes it special
Maybe the store has an amazing cheese selection or a knowledgeable, friendly staff. Or, maybe, it’s the only grocery store in the area that’s open late. Whatever the reason, share details that show why you should go there over another store.
Tell others about the size, cleanliness, and crowds
These details are especially helpful for people who have never been there before.
Share a useful tip
Should shoppers sign up for the loyalty program? Does the store have a newsletter with info about upcoming deals? What’s the best time to go to avoid crowds? Any advice you can give helps other shoppers make the most of their grocery store visits.
