Breakthrough ‘Living Local’ Survey Starts

Look for the Living Local survey inserted into today’s print issue of The Mountain Enterprise.

By taking just 10 minutes to fill out the questionnaire, you can support Mountain Community services, help keep local jobs and make it possible for local businesses to serve you better.

Your valuable feedback will help build a picture of how you feel about shopping “on the hill.” What works? What doesn’t? What do you need from local merchants?

Neighbors will also be making calls to ask our community about shopping patterns, so local businesses can learn how to adapt hours and services to best meet local needs.

To say “Thank You,” you will be automatically eligible to win fun and useful prizes generously contributed by area merchants. Survey “drop boxes” will be all over town, where you can return your survey and pick up more for your friends and family.

See insert in this issue of The Mountain Enterprise and the November issue of The New Mountain Pioneer.
