Over time the information and data provided by the respondents to this survey will create a snapshot of the retail sector, helping us to understand the specific needs and requirements of those involved. It enables Massey and Monash Universities to ensure they continue to undertake research that is important to the retail industry, and provide relevant educational and training degrees, designed for those who wish to make a career of - or grow their professional development skills - within the retail sector, now and into the future.
It's also important for Retail NZ to gather information about the trends in retail. This helps them identify the issues that are important to retailers, so they can lobby central and local government of their behalf.

The 2017 survey was completed in September 2017, and the findings have been discussed in the local and national media.
