Survey Help

Hey y’all, I am currently in an entrepreneurship class and my group needs some people to take a few surveys to help us figure out what we need to emphasize and establish in our project. If any of y’all could answer these questions in this thread or shoot me a pm with it we would greatly appreciate it.

The reason I ask is many of y’all are either in or close to our target market (obviously we need to do more research which is where the surveys help). Think of a local social atmosphere that could support the retail aspect that is provided at the same place.

For example, think of a locally owned CD shop that has an area where they host acoustic bands and have other shows and events. Now our idea is definitely more geared towards guys, but ladies we could use your input as well on how it would be perceived, would you prefer your man to come here, etc…

Appreciate all the help and if y’all have any ideas on how we can improve our idea we are all ears.
