Rural Grocery Store Surveys
Over the years, the Rural Grocery Initiative has collected information on rural grocery stores through conversations, workshops, meetings and, occasionally, surveys. In 2008, when the Rural Grocery Initiative was first starting to learn about rural grocery challenges, a survey was sent to grocery stores and rural grocery store shoppers. The survey results helped inform the Rural Grocery Toolkit. In 2021, an updated survey is being sent out to grocers across the state.
