When you’re in the retail business, location planning is a complicated process. There are many factors to consider when trying to ensure a location can be successful, but at the top of the list is making sure there’s plenty of traffic passing by that site (in other words: potential customers).
When you’re a retailer, restaurant chain or real estate professional, it’s critical to do your homework. Our data partner, ChainXY, makes that much easier, with their chain locational data that allows real estate professionals that are conducting market research to make informed decisions.
You might have heard recently that after many months of delays due to the coronavirus pandemic, the U.S. Census Bureau completed its counts and released its initial batch of data (state data) on April 26, 2021.

We all know that 2020 has brought about many changes in the way people live—and where they live. With the ability to work from anywhere, many people have begun to rethink their priorities when it comes to deciding on the place they choose to call home…and why.
There continue to be many widespread impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, and one we’ve been talking about a lot lately both here on the SiteSeer blog and with our clients is population migration.
If you’ve followed the SiteSeer blog for any amount of time, you know that at SiteSeer, we believe in blending art with science when making market and site decisions. A retailer or other business simply cannot expect that they’ll have wild success by throwing a dart at a map to choose their next location, nor can they pick locations based solely on what their forecasting models and site selection software tell them will be winners.
