SNEWS® wants to hear what you think.

In a regular Reader Poll our subscribers can share their opinion (anonymously, of course) … week after week after week -- and immediately see how their opinion stacks up to others.

To find this gem, scroll down on the home page and on the lower right you’ll see just that “Reader Poll” with a box with the current question. They change quite frequently so make it a habit to take a peek and voice your mind. They are always very short -- just a question or two -- so it only takes a second. And you can click where it says “See results from our previous polls” to do just that.

Past surveys have asked about whether your customers care about the “greenness” of a product, if social networking is beneficial to your business, and what is being done by retailers and for retailers to survive the economy.
