The survey aims to find out how independent businesses are faring, whether people are more aware of and supportive of independent businesses and what key challenges and issues are impacting independent businesses. The survey is being conducted by the Institute for Local Self-Reliance and the Advocates for Independent Business (AIB) coalition, together with local business organizations like ours across North America.

In previous years, this survey has provided unique and important data about the viability of independent businesses and the impact of the localism movement. Last year, more than 3,000 local businesses completed the survey, and its findings were featured in dozens of national and local news stories across the country.

Thank you in advance for taking a moment to complete this important survey before it closes at midnight Pacific Time on January 27: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/IndieBizSurvey2016
