Last week, I sent an email asking you to take an important grocery store satisfaction survey. In case you overlooked the email or haven’t yet had a chance to take the survey, I’m sending you the link to the survey once again:
The survey will CLOSE Sunday, May 11th, at 11:59 p.m. and no more responses will be accepted after that time.
As you know, Dominick’s Finer Foods last year closed all of its Chicago area stores, including its store at the Gateway Shopping Center at Howard and Clark. I worked closely with Mayor Emanuel and his office to identify and recruit a replacement for the Gateway store. As a result,Jewel/Osco will open a full-service supermarket at Gateway this summer andcurrently is hiring people to work at the store.
During the search for a new grocer for Gateway, I met with Mari Gallagher, who heads a research firm that specializes in food access and grocery assessments. Those of you who are long-time Rogers Park residents may recall that Mari was once the Executive Director of DevCorp North, the community development organization now known as the Rogers Park Business Alliance.
Mari’s firm was in the process of conducting a survey on food and grocery needs in other City neighborhoods and she agreed to add Rogers Park to her survey to inform our work. Though we have since successfully recruited Jewel to our community, I still believe Mari’s survey will provide us with important information to assess the grocery needs of the community and ensure that everyone in Rogers Park has access to a full range of healthy food choices.
To share your valuable opinion, please take our survey now by clicking here.
The survey takes between 10 to 15 minutes. No solicitations will result from your participation, and your answers are COMPLETELY CONFIDENTIAL. MG will not release your personal information to me nor anyone else.
We hope you take the survey now. As a thank you for participating, you will be entered in a drawing to win $100 in cash. Again, MG will protect your personal information at all times. No one at my office nor anywhere else will even know who participated in the survey.
Please take the survey now so that we can incorporate your candid opinions into our continued work.
And please remember, the survey will close this Sunday, May 11th, at 11:59 p.m. No responses will be accepted after that time.
