We Want Your Feedback!

Hi everyone!

Thanks for reading The Market Report! We're over 300 posts and 70,000 views, and both of those numbers are going up.

Recently we introduced the-market-report.blogspot.com, a new homepage for the blog. Navigation for the blog's special features will now be through that website, as well as featured posts changing frequently.

Coming by the end of next month, we'll be introducing the Market Guide, which is a series of annual publications listing supermarkets by county or by banner. The 2018 edition will feature 26 counties, including all 21 in New Jersey, as well as Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens, and Richmond Counties making up the five boroughs of New York City, along with location listings for two banners. Each store's banner, full address, and owner or principal will be listed. Hopefully, the 2019 edition (which will be released early in the year) will include all 28 here as well as some additional ones.
Aside from this, normal posting will continue every weekday, and I'm trying to do at least one store tour every week.

So...what else do you want to see? What is The Market Report missing? What would make it easier to read and navigate? Please let me know in the comment section here and I'll see what I can do!

As always, thanks for reading and thanks for your feedback!
Zachary, The Market Report

  1. The title to this post is misleading... you want my feedback, but then you ask me what the blog is missing. My feedback is that the blog is missing nothing! I'm thoroughly impressed with both the volume and content of your posts. And, as I've commented before, I really like your graphic design skills. If I had more time, I'd love to structure my blog similarly, with one post every weekday... but I digress. Keep up the great work!

    1. On the comment page in Blogger, I read only the first few words of your comment without looking at who it was from and started to worry...but thank you very much! It's great to hear this, although rather unhelpful in deciding what to add.

      The only reason that I post so regularly is that I have such a crazy amount of stuff to post. As I hinted to previously, I have actually two more groups of stores like the Hudson County one, each with over 40 stores, and then a few more random groups of stores, on top of the ones I have from the NJ/NY general area. So if I wasn't posting every day, I'd never get anything done!

      Thank you again for your compliments; it's still kind of shocking to me to hear that people actually read and enjoy this blog!

    2. Sorry about that :P And you're very welcome! I'm always surprised that people like these sorts of sites too (beyond those of us in the regular crowd!), so I like to let it be known when given the chance (even though it's probably unnecessary since we both are, in fact, part of that aforementioned crowd :P ). Sorry I'm not much help in coming up with new content ideas either, but like I said, you've already gone way above and beyond all the things I've come up with for my blog! Looking forward to all the new content you mention...

    3. Thank you once again! I hope what I have coming is as interesting as I think it is. Starting in January, I'm also going to have themed weeks -- so there'll be a ShopRite week, an international supermarket week, a former supermarket week, and so on. I think that might make it a little more interesting rather than just throwing out whatever I have.
