National Shopping Service - secret/mystery shopping company

30 Years of History
In 1972, National Shopping Service started out as a small private investigation firm owned and operated by a retired police officer in Orange County, CA, John Astle. Around 1985, Paul Bingham, a salesperson and Mormon Bishop, purchased the company from his long time friend Astle. Bingham utilized his large family to perform almost all of the local mystery shops.

Bingham's business savvy and attention to quality quickly turned in to more clientele. The company was being run from the dining room table of Bingham's Huntington Beach home with all 6 children and wife Barbara helping. Bingham, recognizing his limitations, placed the business on the market for sale in early 1990. The business was listed with a Los Angeles based Mergers and Acquisition firm, Business Index Group. About this time, the economy was in recession and the merger and acquisition business slowed. Matt Wozniak of Business Index Group saw the potential and sturdy foundation of the fledgling National Shopping Service and signed a deal with Bingham to purchase it.
