Sewickley nonprofit asking: What brings you to town?
Shop Sewickley? Village Green Partners want to hear from you.
The nonprofit group marketing Sewickley's business district is seeking responses to a three-question survey asking shoppers what brought them here.
The survey is online and available by paper form in some stores across the business district, Village Green co-founder Jennifer Markus said.
The group — which markets the business district using tax dollars and private money — began distributing the survey earlier this month and plans to continue through September, she said.
A 2010 survey received more than 1,000 responses, and Markus said she wants to achieve similar numbers this year.
She said the goal for the survey is to understand shoppers in Sewickley.
“We are using this to find out who is visiting our businesses, where they are coming from and what types of things that people would like to see in Sewickley, so we can fine tune our business development and advertising efforts,” Markus said.
More than 100 responses have been collected already, she said.
“You'll find the answers very interesting. There's a lot of great stuff in there,” Markus said.
