To: Our valued members, customers, and vendors

The COVID 19 pandemic, through the many "shelter in place" government directives, the closing of non-essential retail businesses, and restraining consumer access to various hospitality businesses has essentially ground the need for mystery shops and demonstrations to a halt. These actions, in context with operating challenges experienced by Shadow Shopper during the past year, have severely crippled our ability to offer dependable services and to profitably continue operations.

As a result, unfortunately and with great sadness, we must immediately cease business as of today March 29, 2020.

For nearly two decades, Shadow Shopper has been a vital resource for the mystery shopping and demonstration industries. We gratefully thank the hundreds of thousands of independent contractors who over the years faithfully utilized the services of Shadow Shopper, the vendors who continued in support of the business, and our partners, the hard working colleagues of Shadow Shopper.

To aid in your transition to a new Mystery Shop service, we recommend registering with "GigSpot" at; there you will find the resources to continue in your mystery shopping career.

Thank you,

Shadow Shopper
