The survey closes at midnight Pacific Time on Wednesday, January 28.

This survey is for independently owned businesses and is completely confidential. It should take less than 10 minutes to complete.
It has three main goals:
1. To gauge how independent businesses are faring
2. To assess whether people are more aware and supportive of locally owned, independent businesses
3. To identify some of the main challenges and policy issues affecting independent businesses.
The survey is being conducted by the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, a national nonprofit research and educational organization, in partnership with dozens of local and national independent business groups
Now in its 8th year, 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 2,500 local businesses completed the survey and its findings were featured in dozens of national and local news stories across the country.

Please take a few minutes to complete the survey now:
On behalf of Stacy Mitchell of the Institute for Local Self-Reliance, AMIBA and Shop Local Raleigh, all the best, and again, many thanks!
