Traders urged to take part in survey

THE Warwick Chamber of Commerce has almost finished polling all the relevant traders on their opinions and attitudes to the proposed introduction of seven-day trading into Warwick.

The results of this poll will then be taken into consideration when the Chamber decides its policy on the matter in the next few months.

Chamber president John Randall said it was important for the sake of accuracy to survey as many of the traders as possible within the designated area.

“We’ve spoken face to face with over 100 traders so far, and we estimate there’s probably another 25-30 interviews to go,” Mr Randall said.

“The Chamber has to have a defined policy towards 7DT by the end of August, so that we can present our submission in writing to the Industrial Commission by the first week of September.”

The Chamber will then have the opportunity to appear before the Commission in early October and personally state its case on behalf of the Warwick business community.

In the meantime, Mr Randall urged any traders not yet surveyed to contact him on 4661 1741.
