Retail Possibilities - Community Surveys

  1. 1
  2. 2
  3. 3

The City of Hanford is a growing community in California's Central Valley. As more people call Hanford "home," the City must take a proactive approach in meeting the community's needs and pursuing new opportunities, including retail establishments and clothing stores.

We'd like the community to be part of the process by telling us which amenities you'd like to see here in Hanford. This will help us in our retail recruitment efforts.

Please participate in our newest retail surveys. In each survey, there are 10 total choices. Please choose your top three (3) and then rank them in order of preference.

Retail Possibilities-Grocery Stores
Retail Possibilities-Health and Personal Care Stores & Fitness and Recreational Sport Centers

These surveys will be open until Tuesday, October 24.
