The Roy Morgan Shoe Store Customer Satisfaction Report shows The Athlete’s Foot holding a comfortable lead with a customer satisfaction rating of 84%, ahead of both Williams (74%) and Spendless Shoes (71%).

These newly released customer satisfaction ratings have been taken from the Roy Morgan Single Source survey, compiled by in-depth face-to-face interviews with over 50,000 Australians each year in their homes.

Roy Morgan CEO Michele Levine says that The Athlete’s Foot has been rewarded for maintaining stable customer satisfaction ratings over the past three years, in an industry that is experiencing considerable fluctuations in satisfaction levels.

The Athlete’s Foot’s satisfaction rating of 84% is only down 2% compared with three years ago. This is in contrast to Williams on 74%, which has decreased 10% over the same period, and Spendless Shoes, now part of the Novo Shoes Group, on 71%, dropping 16%.”
