Chamber ALX Launches Survey of Local Businesses

As part of The Chamber ALX’s efforts to advocate for local businesses, the organization has put together a survey for local business owners seeking their feedback on what kind of resources they need to survive.

The new survey asks local businesses things like whether they’ve accessed financial resources yet and what specific rules and regulations need to be changed to help local businesses.

The survey also asks locals to share stories about how the pandemic affected them and ways local leadership either helped or let them down.

“If applicable, please share any real world experiences,” the chamber said. “This can be how the pandemic has impacted your business, personal/professional balance, concerns, hopes, things our elected leaders missed the mark on or actions that they took that really made a positive impact.”

Local businesses have faced a difficult year, with several local favorites closing and full economic recovery likely to be a several year effort.
