This is the first such initiative in the Italian retail sector and, so far, more than 80,000 consumer reviews have been published on the site.
Between now and 4 November, consumers that submit their votes and comments will be able to avail of a €5 discount voucher, valid for the 120 stores trading under the U! Come tu mi vuoi, U2 Supermercato and Il Viaggiator Goloso banners, as well as in Iper, la grande i hypermarkets.
According to the director of sales, marketing and communications of Unes, Rossella Brenna, “customer reviews positively influence other customer purchases, drive product development and improvement, and inspire offline communications activities".
