Retail Site Location
It’s exceptionally important to know which location will allow your new retail branch to best connect with the right demographics when planning a new retail branch. These concerns are just as applicable to your existing locations, and are central to assessing the success of a given branch and projecting KPIs moving forward.
Knowing where your customer bases reside is a good start, but the journey between these points and your network of branches can be more richly and accurately mapped out with the right information. Use geographic data to enhance shopper profiling, follow changing consumption trends and refine outlet capacities.
Strategize your branch locations to better reach customers where demand is the greatest and use a more intimate knowledge of your customers’ locations and their movements to drive conversion whilst consolidating brand interest.
