Every day at work I would go above and beyond for customer service. For example, if the pharmacy is not busy I would offer to assist and show patients OTC products by personally walking them to the location to find it. That way I am actually engaging with the customer and it builds a great relationship.

A customer had ordered a French vanilla latte, but didn't want it very sweet. I informed the customer that we don't have the specific French vanilla flavor, but could make a latte with vanilla and hazelnut flavoring which tastes the same as French vanilla and put only half the amount of flavor in her drink so it wasn't too sweet. The customer was very satisfied with her drink once she took the first sip.
At Ikea I try to go above and beyond with every customer I interact with. The best one I can remember is a gentelman I was helping in my current department that was not having a good day. Not only did we not have the item he needed but he had traveled for four hours to come to the store. I listened to his story and I managed to find the item for him in my department at half the price. He was very excited to find it. But seeing as he had not had such a good time in the other departments I also got him an accomodation for a gift card which I recommended he buy his grandaughter a soft toy for her birthday.( He told me about this as I was walking with him to the cash lanes.) These happened to be on sale to help benefit unicef. By the end of his trip he was much happier and said he would always come back and look for me to lend a helping hand.
