Understanding the retail sector

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 in the retail sector.

Starting this morning (Monday), 1,000 Island residents will be phoned at random and invited to take part.

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.

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

The survey runs through to September 30.
