One week left to get involved with our CSG-backed retail survey

Calling all independent stores: can you help BikeBiz’s market research?

If you’re an independent retailer, BikeBiz would like to hear your thoughts, concerns, aspirations and much more in our survey of front line business, found here.

With just one week remaining to get involved, our CSG-backed research hopes to draw conclusions on the greatest threats to the independent trade – be it grey import competition, supermarkets invading your space, or online retail – let us know what concerns you most.

On a more positive note, the anonymous survey seeks to find out how the fortunes of the trade are imporved by the likes of cycle to work schemes, finance providers and the workshop among other things.

Co-director Russell Merry told BikeBiz: "CSG UK is delighted by sponsor the retailer survey conducted by BikeBiz. In a market (UK) where we have very little actual data available, a greater understanding of the marketplace will benefit consumers, dealers and suppliers and can advance the cycle industry as a whole. We are happy to play a small part in helping the dealer/market survey happen."

BikeBiz asks that you please only take the survey if you represent an independent bicycle business.
