Guernsey Retail Survey

The States of Guernsey have published the results of the retail survey conducted by Island Global Research, on behalf of The Committee for Economic Development. The States have said:

“The Committee for Economic Development is providing retailers in Guernsey with a wealth of information on local consumer habits and preferences, with the publication of the results of the Retail Survey.

The survey, carried out for the Committee by Island Global Research, collected the views of more than 900 Guernsey residents on the retail experience offered both on-island and online, how they make purchase decisions, and how the sector may best meet their shopping needs.

The Committee is using the findings to inform its approach to the retail sector, and is circulating the results to businesses on its retailer database, and publishing them more widely online, so that businesses can also benefit from the data gathered.”

The team here at Island Global Research would also like to take this opportunity to thank all of those participated in the survey at the end of last year. We really appreciate your feedback on retail in Guernsey and hope you find the results interesting.
