"In September 1978 the Biloela Promotion Bureau funded a study of shopping behaviour of local residents. Thirteen students spent one week in the field at Biloela interviewing shop-keepers, noting the prices and variety of goods offered for sale and interviewing 186 local residents about their shopping habits...The aim of the study was to determine the shopping behaviour of local residents, to document the role of larger centres like Rockhampton, Gladstone and Brisbane in diverting retail expenditure from local shops and to advise local storekeepers how to improve their services to attract more custom."--p. 1.
