Clipperguy Business Building from A to Zoot - Letter G is for Greet Immediately

Letter G is for Greet Immediately - Always a pet peeve of mine.  Fast, simple sincere greetings are gold for a business.  Consumers notice when this happens.  They notice when it is missing.  It sets the tone for their impression of the business and their entire experience. Corny, but, you never get a second chance to make a first impression.  Some of the big haircut chains do a great job of this.  Others have it in their plans but fail to execute consistently.
