TRUSTED COMPANY: Glenwood Auto

 

Date: Monday, June 10th

 

 

MYSTERY SHOP CHECKLIST:

 

1. How was the greeting/ welcome/ call answered?  Very professionally and with courtesy.

 

2. If retail: Appearance of the store / staff and showroom?  Clean and organized. As we were leaving one of the employees even dipped into a toy chest to give my 1 year old a little car to take home.

 

3. Product/industry knowledge of staff?  Very knowledgeable and honest.

 

4. If a quote is required is the quote well laid out/ clear?  A verbal quote was needed to approve work and this was clear and well layed out.

 

5. Did they ask where you found them? No.

 

6. Overall experience 1-10.  10

 

7. Would you return as a customer/ recommend them to close friends?  Yes

 

8. Did anyone stand out as exceptional? If so who? Why?  I felt well taken care of by the whole team. Sadly I did not write down the name of the front person, but he was a gentleman and was wonderful. I had to get $700 worth of work done, but really liked when he called me to tell me the news that at least we sounded almost a little bad about it, like he was hurting along with me. I appreciated this as sometimes people are arrogant and really deadpan-matter-of-fact when giving news involving money, and this eased the blow.

 

9. If you made a purchase/booked a job how was the process?

If so refer to the Trusted Guarantees and give an overall mark on each if applicable. (on a 10 scale, 10 is high)

 

TRUSTED GUARANTEES

1. Provide the service and quality promised - 10

2. Complete the job on time - 10

3. Charge the price quoted with NO surprises - 10

4. Communicate honestly and be responsive to customer needs - 10

5. Resolve any issues with customer satisfaction in mind - 10

Trusted Saskatoon Veterinary Expert share a Trusted Tip on pets mealtime

Here our Vet Experts share a tip on pets mealtime: 

Puppies

Feed a high quality diet designed for puppies. A wide variety of diets and formulations are available and your veterinarian should be your primary source of information as to the best choice for your puppy. The amount fed will vary with the type of food and the individual dog, but in general, should only be as much as the puppy can consume in 5 to 10 minutes at a given meal. Puppies are usually fed 3 times daily when between 6 and 12 weeks old, 2 times daily when 12 weeks to 6 months old, and may be fed 1 or 2 times daily when older than 6 months.

For certain large breeds of dogs, your veterinarian may recommend that several smaller meals be fed rather than 1 large meal (even when your dog becomes an adult) because an association has been suggested between the consumption of large meals and a serious medical condition called gastric dilatation/volvulus or "bloat."

 

Be careful not to overfeed. Generally, portion as much as the puppy can consume in 5 to 10 minutes at a given meal.

Kittens

Feed a high quality diet designed for kittens. Your veterinarian is your best source for information regarding an appropriate diet for your kitten. Dry foods are usually most economical and have the advantage of providing a rough surface that will help reduce plaque and tartar buildup on your kitten's teeth, but canned foods can be fed/supplemented if desired.

Amount fed will depend on the diet, as well as the age, size, and activity level of your kitten. Kittens can be fed free-choice or at set mealtimes; however, many veterinarians recommend feeding all pets at set mealtimes because intake can be more easily monitored. Canned foods should always be fed at set times, because if left unrefrigerated, they can spoil. I recommend use of stainless steel bowls because plastic and ceramic bowls can scratch, leaving crevices for bacteria to hide. The latter types of bowls (and resultant resident bacteria) have been associated with feline "acne" and skin irritation. 

 

 

Dry foods are usually most economical and have the advantage of providing a rough surface that will help reduce plaque and tartar buildup on your kitten's teeth.

Trusted Saskatoon Natural Health Expert shares a Trusted Tip on GT's Kombucha drinks that they now carry in the store!

 Trusted share a tip on a GT's Kombucha drinks that they now carry in the store:

 

GT's Kombucha drinks come in 3 delicious flavours: Gingerberry, Cosmic Cranberry and Divine Grape.  

 

What are the health benefits of Kombucha?

 

Kombucha Health Benefit #1 — Detoxification  

Detoxification produces healthy livers and aides cancer prevention. One of kombucha’s greatest health benefits is its ability to detox the body. It is rich in many of the enzymes and bacterial acids your body produces and/or uses to detox your system, thus reducing your pancreatic load and easing the burden on your liver. Kombucha is very high in Glucaric acid, and recent studies have shown that glucaric acid helps prevent cancer. I know 2 people in my immediate circle of friends who have had cancer (pancreatic and breast) and fought it into remission without any chemo or radiation therapy. Instead, they warded it off by detoxing their lives (going 100% organic, removing chemical cleaners and agents in their home, changing their diet to be at least 80% raw or fermented, etc.) Central to the detoxification process was drinking Kombucha regularly. Even Alexander Solzhenitsyn, the recently deceased Russian author and nobel-prize winner, in his autobiography, claimed that kombucha tea cured his stomach cancer during his internment in soviet labor camps. (And because of this testimony, President Reagan used Kombucha to halt the spread of his cancer in 1987. You’ll note he didn’t die until 2004, and that was from old age, NOT cancer.)

 

Kombucha Health Benefit #2 — Joint Care  

Kombucha contains glucosamines, a strong preventive and treatment all forms of arthritis. Glucosamines increase synovial hyaluronic acid production. Hyaluronic acid functions physiologically to aid preservation of cartilage structure and prevent arthritic pain, with relief comparable to NSAIDs and advantage over glucocorticoids. Hyaluronic acid enables connective tissue to bind moisture thousands of times its weight and maintains tissue structure, moisture, lubrication and flexibility and lessens free radical damage, while associated collagen retards and reduces wrinkles.

 

Kombucha Health Benefit #3 — Aids Digestion and Gut Health  

Because it’s naturally fermented with a living colony of bacteria and yeast, Kombucha is a probiotic beverage. This has a myriad of benefits such as improved digestion, fighting candida (harmful yeast) overgrowth, mental clarity, and mood stability. As such, it’s noted for reducing or eliminating the symptoms of fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, etc.

 

Kombucha Health Benefit #4 — Immune Boosting

Kombucha is extraordinarily anti-oxidant rich, and you all know the benefits of anti-oxidants for boosting your immune system and energy levels.
