We need to take your pulse. Yes, that’s right your pulse.

The Sooke News Mirror wants to find out how you plan to spend your hard-earned dollars in the local marketplace. The information you provide will assist businesses and us — your local media team — in making decisions for the future.

So how do we plan to retrieve this important information? Via an easy-to-complete, on-line survey. OK, we know you are rolling your eyes at yet another survey, however there is a $1,000 prize being awarded as an incentive to get you, our readers, to put fingers to the keyboard.

The questions are simple and all we ask is that you give us a little of your time.

Pulse Research is conducting the shopping survey for us. It does not give away your personal information, so no worries there.
