Retail Location and Network Planning

Location is one of the most critical success factors for any retail outlet.

Which is why the most efficient and profitable store networks are designed with retail centre intelligence, local area data and consumer insights at their heart. We can help you benchmark and increase the performance of your existing stores sites, whilst selecting the best sites for investment.

Combining demographic, footfall and demand datasets with cutting edge modelling we can help you answer the fundamental questions of retail location planning:

  • Where should I open my next store?
  • Who shops there?
  • Where else do they shop?
  • How many stores do I need?
  • Should I consolidate?
  • Where are my competitors located?
  • What is my potential in this market?
  • What are the local drivers for performance?
  • How will my network react to competitor or retail centre changes?

As well as providing a definitive view of the UK retail landscape, we work with some of the world's biggest retailers, establishing and optimising their global distribution networks. For example, our Tokyo team provides consultancy for some of the leading brands in the Asia Pacific Region. Our clients include fast food restaurant chains, sportswear giants, convenience stores, automotive distributors and petrol forecourts.
