Hibbing Ore and More Survey Results Are In!

Thank you for participating in our Brand Measurement Study.  We wanted to measure whether residents were aware of the green "Hibbing > We're Ore and More;" whether they thought of it positively, negatively, or didn't have a strong opinion; and whether or not residents would advocate for (or recommend) Hibbing.  Overall, we had good results!  Please watch and share this link.  The more we all can say positive things about Hibbing, the better our chances will be of drawing retail, visitors and dollars to our community.  It really does make a difference.  Thank you again for keeping the Ore and More spirit going!
