Retail Pulse

The Retail Pulse is a retail sales survey conducted with retailers of all sizes and across various industries throughout greater Hampton Roads. The aim of the survey is to take a reading of the market on a regular basis throughout the year and in particular after major sales periods such as Thanksgiving, Back to School, Mother’s Day, Labor Day, etc. Participants do not have to be members of Retail Alliance.

Participants of the survey will be given exclusive full results of the survey to see how the local retail industry is performing and also see how they are performing against other retailers in the same category.

Topline results are provided to the media, with the possibility of media exposure for the retailer and follow-up commentary. We also publish top line results in our online and print newsletters.

If you are interested in participating or have questions about the survey, please contact Kylie Ross Sibert at 757-455-9323 or email
