Discover Lanark has completed over 400 Shopper Surveys spanning a 3 week period using the service and skills of a professional survey company. The Surveys were completed at various points within the town centre. These included:
- High Street (Top & Bottom),
- Wellgate, Castlegate, Broomgate and Bloomgate,
- Train Station and Bus Station,
- Braidfute Retail Park.
The surveys were completed throughout different days and times of the week. We looked to capture the true Lanark shopping experience as seen through the eyes of the people using Lanark for all its services and shops. The questionnaire was a detailed survey into many aspects of the shopper experience consisting of around 40 questions taking on average 15 minutes to complete.
The results will be analysed with results available in the New Year. The Shopper Survey will be used in conjunction with a business owner/manager survey to create our Business Vision for Lanark and will form the building blocks of the Discover Lanark Business Plan.
We would like to thank Tesco, Braidfute Retail Park and Lanark Tollbooth for their co-operation and assistance during this survey.
