Feb. 12, 2012, Simcoe, ON - Canadian Garden Centre & Nursery magazine just launched its 2012 survey of Canadian independent garden centres, only this year we're not alone. The 2012 survey is being run in conjunction with the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association and Garden Centres Canada.
The survey contains 30 questions on all aspects of garden centre and nursery operations, and takes less than 15 minutes to complete. The goal is to create a snapshot of the industry, allowing owners and managers a chance to see where they stand compared to their colleagues across the nation, and to benchmark their operations. Questions delve into staffing, workload, sales and marketing, pay scales, operating margins and more, and all answers will remain confidential and anonymous. Results will be reported in aggregate only to CNLA members and our readers.
Please take the time to fill out the survey and help the industry learn a little more about itself. Start here .
