How would you like to raise $300 for your non-profit group?

Our Secret Shopper program will donate $25 each time one of your group members shops the store and returns a short survey form.

At Memory Lane, we feel our customers the most important people we know. To best serve our customers, our associates aspire to meet special service standards that set them apart from associates in ordinary stores.

Your group is working hard to make our community a better place to live. You are involved – putting in time, energy and a piece of yourself as a volunteer or as a program coordinator. Yet energy, passion, and commitment are not enough. You need lots of different resources, including money. And fundraising is hard to do!

We want to help you raise $300 for your group in just 12 weeks!

We’d like to help your group by offering a donation for each of your members who is willing to come to our store as a “Secret Shopper” then fill out and return a short questionnaire about their experience. It’s a win-win situation for both of us… We get to know more about how our customers are being treated and you get money for your organization!

Here’s what you’d have to do:

  • Fill out the "Letter to Group / Sign Up Form" and send to us to apply.
  • When you are notified of acceptance, pick up you package of program materials at the store.
  • Line up and schedule your members to “secret shop” our store on various days and at various times.
  • Make sure the shoppers are conscientiously completing their shopping assignments, filling out, and returning their forms.

Here’s what we’ll do for your members and your organization:

  • Provide a secret shopper packet for each of your volunteers.
  • Give each volunteer $10 to spend while shopping in our store.
  • Donate $25 to your organization for every secret shopper form and receipt returned.

If you’re interested in partnering with us to raise money for your organization, please complete the information form and return it to us with photocopy evidence of your organization’s tax exempt, non-profit status. We look forward to working with you!
