Question 1:Observation Study
Visit a store (grocery or major retail store) and spend at least two hours there during the peak period. Observe the service the store provides to customers while they are checking out. Use the questionnaire here to record your observations.
Important: Be sure to speak with the store manager and obtain permission to conduct research on the store premises before proceeding with your research and data collection.
Write a two-page report on your statistics. Can you see a pattern in the observations? If yes, why do you think that pattern exists? Give possible reasons for your findings. Apply APA standards for writing style, spelling, and grammar.(get observation study)
