Introduction

Task 2 There are all sorts of customers; in businesses, some are old and they may need help, for example customers on wheel chairs, customers who cannot speak English and have difficult in explaining what they want and many more. I am going to investigate how businesses deal with their customers. Special needs: keep in mind that special needs people are usually the ones who need special care; it is a good idea if you have trained people to help them look after.

If at any time you are in doubt then confer with your supervisor or manager, however staff must remember that at all times they should keep smiling be polite and have respect.
