SiteSeer is easy to use and highly powerful for those seeking to make smarter site selection and market decisions, but it goes without saying that it’s not easy to learn new software. That’s why your subscription to SiteSeer comes with thorough onboarding—no matter which plan you subscribe to—as well as training. Any time you need help putting SiteSeer to work, our dedicated support team is here to answer your questions via phone or email.
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.
Location, location, location! There’s a reason real estate pros joke that the three most important factors in a piece of property are the exact same thing.
At ICSC in May 2023, we’ll be unveiling a new upgrade to the Model Builder tool that we’re very excited about (more on that below). But if you’re still learning about SiteSeer Pro and its many features, allow us to introduce you to Model Builder, one of the most popular features within SiteSeer.
These last few years, most of us have grown used to change. We’ve seen ups and downs, and market disruptions upon new market disruptions. In 2023, there’s one thing that is true: it’s a nerve-wracking time for many consumer-facing businesses!
As 2022 comes to a close and SiteSeer clients are looking toward and planning for 2023, we wanted to revisit a topic we’ve discussed on the blog in years past: which retail categories grew and shrunk (physical stores/locations) during the year (to date). To refresh your memory, we first analyzed data on store openings and closures for 2020, and then again for 2021 (or more accurately, January-October 2021).
In the grocery industry, like many retail industries, there’s no room for error when it comes to opening new locations. Before you invest time, energy and financial resources into the opening of a store, you need to analyze that site thoroughly and understand its sales potential.
Here’s a scenario we’ve seen a lot here at SiteSeer: an entrepreneur starts a business. Maybe it’s a retail business of some kind—a boutique clothing store, an ice cream shop, a bike shop—or maybe it’s a restaurant.
Next month, the SiteSeer team is on the road! We’ll be at ICSC@Western in San Diego at the San Diego Convention Center September 28-30, 2022, and we’d love to meet you!
