Retail and Restaurant Survey

We need your help! The Retail Development Committee of the Hastings Area Chamber of Commerce is currently conducting a survey of area residents concerning the retail and restaurant environment in Hastings. The information you provide will help us better target our efforts in creating a more robust and responsive retail and restaurant sector in Hastings. There are no correct or incorrect responses, only your much needed opinions.

This survey should take approximately 18 minutes to complete. As a token of thanks for your time and input, we're offering you the opportunity to register to win one of five $100 prizes in the form of Hastings Dollars, redeemable at any Adams County business. All responses will be treated confidentially and the optional submission of your contact information at the end of the survey will only be used for your registration in the Hastings Dollars giveaway.

We care about what you think and look forward to improving the Hastings restaurant and retail environment. Thank you for sharing!

Hastings Market Information

The purpose of the Retail Development Committee is to grow the number of retailers in the Hastings community, as well as, retain our current retailers. To help with this effort, the Committee recently employed the services of Dr. Corey Stutte of Strategic Pioneer to conduct a retail study to help us identify the community's strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats. Dr. Stutte broke information down into several presentations geared toward specific market segments.
