Have a say on re­tail

Pilbara News - - Pilbara News - Ali­cia Per­era

Res­i­dents have al­most a week left to have their say on the state of re­tail in the Pil­bara.

The Pil­bara Re­tail/Fran­chise At­trac­tion Sur­vey is be­ing run by four Pil­bara coun­cils — the City of Kar­ratha and Shires of Ash­bur­ton, Port Hed­land, East Pil­bara — to col­lect pub­lic feed­back on the gaps in the re­gion’s re­tail sec­tor and how they can be ad­dressed.

The brief sur­vey asks ques­tions such as which types of busi­nesses res­i­dents would like more of and how much on­line shop­ping they do.

Re­tail is con­sid­ered to be an emerg­ing in­dus­try in the Pil­bara in the wake of the min­ing boom and a way to boost the re­gional econ­omy through lo­cal job cre­ation and spend­ing.

Re­sponse to the sur­vey can be sub­mit­ted un­til Mon­day, Oc­to­ber 17. To com­plete it on­line, go to www.sur­vey­mon­key.com/r/pil­bararetail.
