In 1908, a French retailer named César Ritz replaced “caveat emptor” with “Le client n’a jamais tort,” which was the source of one of American’s best known business adages – “The customer is always right.” American retail giants like John Wannamaker and Marshall Fields based the foundation of their customer service on those five words alone.
Now everyone knows that no one, including customers, is always right. There’s no need for a government study to confirm that fact. But in 1900, society embraced “caveat emptor,” or “let the buyer beware.” It was up to the customer to make sure that the deal was fair. The Better Business Bureau would not be founded until 1912, and complaints often fell on deaf ears – no Twitter to vent your outrage for another century.
This new way of thinking about customers was more than just a fair deal. Wannamaker introduced innovations in his Philadelphia retail store like electric lighting as well as elevators to make shopping easier. In order to keep prices low, he started major event sales, like the nation’s first “White Sale.” Wannamaker appreciated his customers and did what he could to keep them happy.
