Successful retail chains know that choosing sites is a complex and data-driven process. As technology has improved and the availability of data has expanded significantly in recent years, businesses now understand that site selection should be done methodically, using the best, most relevant data available to them.
We’ve been here before. In early 2020, uncertainty was the word of the day, with the brief but serious recession induced by the pandemic and social distancing measures all over the globe. Somehow, things quickly rebounded and shoppers kept spending—albeit on things like home gym equipment and casual clothing until lockdowns eased. When that happened, people were eager to dine out and travel safely again.
Retail chains that have grown successfully have certainly learned their share of lessons along the way. Sometimes the growth seems to come easily, while other times it’s tricky to figure out. Choosing great locations can happen accidentally, but in today’s ultra-competitive landscape, that’s rare. Especially since the market has tightened and retailers are selective in how they spend their hard-earned money.
It’s been a long time coming, and we’re very excited to share that the SiteSeer support team is incorporating the newly released 2020 U.S. Census data into SiteSeer. This update will be complete when users log in to the platform on Monday, August 28, 2023.
