Retail Pulse is back! If you aren’t familiar with Retail Pulse, it’s an annual survey Retail Alliance conducts, to check on the vitality and success of retail in the Hampton Roads region. This year we are back with a survey to gauge the expectations and intentions of shoppers and store owners this holiday season. Both surveys are now live and ready to be taken.
We didn’t conduct our survey last year, but we are very ambitious and excited this year due to the potential reach we have with the amazing growth of our buy local program and app, LOVEVA. With over 17,000 downloads and nearly 120K transactions on the record, we have a great base of active shoppers to deliver this survey to, in addition to our 400+ Retail Alliance Members and 350+ participating LOVEVA businesses.
Along with launching the two surveys, we are conducting a raffle to win 2 sets of 2 tickets to the 68th Annual Oyster Bowl ODU Football Game + Red Parking Pass on November 18th, with the condition of completing the Retail Pulse Holiday Shopping Survey. Yes, that’s right, by completing the survey, you are automatically entered for a chance to win, for both store owners and shoppers!
This “Answer to Win” survey initiative will run now through 5PM on November 10th! In addition, to promoting the survey on both the Retail Alliance & LOVEVA Facebook page, we are also partnering with local media outlets to get the word out about this initiative.
Whether you just love college football or support retail businesses and shopping, make sure you fill out the survey(s) linked below so you can help us gather great data on the pulse of Hampton Roads retail and shopping this holiday season.
