  • Survey – Number of Competitors

    Posted by Site Administrator on November 23, 2010 at 1:27 pm

    Compared to 2 years ago (since the economy took the big hit), do you now have:

    _____ More competitor shops in your area

    _____ Same number of competitor shops in your area

    _____ Less competitor shops in your area

    (If you care to comment on why, please do so.)

    Thanks!

    We have the same amount of shops. I find they are cutting prices & quality just to have cars in the shop.

    At least two less near the location we were in earlier this year. Still way too many there.

    The good news is that we moved about 4 miles north. Less than half the number of competitors. Better yet, most are hidden with only one easily visible from the main road.

    We have the same number of competitors…even though business was down in 2010 everyone is still hanging in there. One shop went out only to have someone new open up there 2 months later.
