How do you shop?

That's what the Department of Economic Development wants to know as it undertakes a review of the Island's retail strategy.

To discover more it's commissioned a survey to try and understand the impact of changing shopping habits on the retail sector.

Starting this morning a thousand Island residents will be phoned at random . and invited to take part in the survey.

 The survey is being conducted by NEMS Market Research who will introduce themselves at the start of each call and advise that they are calling on behalf of the Isle of Man Government. The survey runs until the 30th of September.

Chair of the Retail Strategy Committee, Laurence Skelly MHK, says the survey will help them identify any changing habits among shoppers and plan for the future
