Shoppers World CEO To Become ‘Undercover Boss’

Viewers across America will get the chance to see Sam Dushey, CEO of discount department store Shoppers World, on CBS’s “Undercover Boss” as he seeks to gain insights about his employees and stores and improve his company’s policies and systems.

While undercover, Dushey visited four Shoppers World stores: two in Queens and Brooklyn, New York; one in Cleveland, Ohio; and one in the Atlanta suburb of Morrow, Georgia.

“Field intelligence is the best intelligence,” said Dushey. “Undercover Boss is the best way to hear first-hand from the employees in the stores. I could never replicate this experience on my own. The show gave me an additional opportunity to demonstrate to our employees that we appreciate them, their hard work and that I’m dedicating our efforts to improving the Shoppers World brand as we expand into additional states.”

The Undercover Boss episode will air Sunday, January 3, 8:30 to 9:30 p.m. ET.

Shoppers World is a family-owned and -operated full-line discount department store chain headquartered in New York City with 40 stores across 11 states, and offers fashion apparel and merchandise, including housewares and home furnishings. The retailer said it plans to expand to 500 stores.
