Small Business Re-Opening Community Survey Results
The Lapeer Small Business Re-Opening Survey was produced by the Lapeer Main Street DDA and the Lapeer Area Chamber of Commerce. The Survey was a mix of multiple choice and short answer questions. These questions were designed to get an idea of what the comfort level of the public will be when the economy opens back up, how quickly they will resume their shopping/spending habits and what kind of safety measures they would like to see implemented by small businesses. Feedback was collected from 1293 participants. The full survey with results is available for download here:
