After all, the underpinning of the marketing concept is that identification and satisfaction of customer needs leads to improve customer retention. If a company wants to win from competition, it has to explore new customers and retain existing customers. One of the key factors is service quality, influencing customer satisfaction and repurchase intentions that create long-term profits.
Research population of this study was the customers consuming in RE-MART hypermarket within Taipei area. We sent out 320 questionnaires in total. The survey returned 309 usable questionnaires; the response rate is 96.56%. We use structural equation model to investigate the interrelationship among service quality, customer satisfaction and loyalty from customers’ point of view. In addition, the multiple regression method was employed to find out which is the most influential factor among the five service quality factors.
From the data analysis, we found that service quality positively affects customer satisfaction; customer satisfaction positively affects customer loyalty; service quality does not positively affect customer loyalty in the RE-MART within Taipei area. Furthermore, we found that the reliability factor is the most influential predictor among the five service quality factors on the level of customer satisfaction.
