Under Age Sales Testing
Our underage sales testing services can be used in:
> Supermarkets and convenience stores.
> Clubs/Pubs – alcohol purchases and on the door entry.
> Department stores.
> Amusement/entertainment centres.
In fact, anywhere legislation applies for purchasing goods we can place our mystery shoppers to report back the findings. We age profile our mystery shoppers and back this up with photographic evidence of appearance. All our visitors are between 18-23 years of age and should be challenged in relation to alcohol or age-restricted products.
Conducting age-related sales testing:
> Our young mystery shoppers will visit your store or location to purchase an age-restricted item and complete a report in relation to the visit (see the updated code of practice for age-restricted products and services). Contained within the report will be factual information to support the score and outcome. Our testing team are handpicked and qualified to carry out the work on our behalf.
> We capture the name of the server or description and whether or not your staff are proactively asking for identification (age verification) when purchasing from the restricted sale item list?
> We also audit other elements within your location to ensure the relevant posters and warnings are presented at locations where either alcohol is sold or areas where an age restriction applies. This gives an overall visit score separate to the main Pass/Fail question and enables you to ensure that you are taking every measure possible to adhere to legal requirements.
