Survey Says

January 5th, 2020

It’s competitive out there. And tough for both brands and retailers. With more than 9,300 stores closing in 2019, we decided to do a research study about brand loyalty and brand choices.

On October 29, 2019, we asked 529 men and women across the country – ranging in age and income – about their shopping habits. In the articles to follow, we’ll take a deep dive into some of the results. But first, here are details about the people who took the survey, as well as a few key topline findings.
