The Institute for Local Self-Reliance (ILSR) is conducting a national survey of small independent businesses to gather data and insights into how those businesses are performing and the challenges they are facing. The organization will use the data gathered to inform elected officials, journalists and city leaders. The survey is confidential and does not ask to share business names; only aggregate data will be viewed and released.
ILSR is a national nonprofit research and educational organization that advocates for small independent businesses. It is working in conjunction with partners like the North American Hardware and Paint Association (NHPA) to conduct this survey. The survey opens on January 11 and closes on January 27 with results shared February 15. To take the ILSR survey, click here.
