Back in February 2021, we wanted to take a look at the year 2020 and figure out what retail categories did well (grew) and which ones struggled (shrunk). The year started off as many years do and then when the World Health Organization declared the coronavirus outbreak to be a global pandemic on March 11th, life as we all know it changed forever.
If you’ve ever requested custom analytics from the SiteSeer professional services team, chances are you’ve received something created by Kay, our director of solution development. Kay is tasked with helping clients get the most out of the SiteSeer platform, which sometimes involves market research services or creating surveys—or something else entirely.
SiteSeer is a powerful platform used and trusted by retailers, brokers and developers, and communities who want to make better site decisions. We know what sets our tool apart: it’s easy to use, it’s powerful yet accessible for users who aren’t analysts, and it is data agnostic—so you can use third-party data as well as your own data for better market and site selection analytics.
We’re excited to share some news about a new way to access the power of SiteSeer—a mobile application that is currently in development!
Over the last year, the business headlines have been dominated by companies that have struggled—the restaurants, retailers, and other independent and chain businesses that have seen decreased demand or been forced to operate at reduced capacity for the majority of the past 13 months.

With many states laying out restrictions, some businesses were thrust into e-commerce on zero notice, while other businesses were forced to think outside the box on how to reach their customers in new ways.
Just before the calendar flipped to 2021, Albertsons Companies made a big announcement regarding its grocery delivery service.
Franchise planning has been beyond challenging in the last 11 months and it’s still not easy. If you were established before 2020, your territory plan is probably out the window right now and the capacity you thought you had for smart retail growth might have changed significantly.
It has been a long time coming, but it’s finally here: the end of 2020 and the strangest and perhaps most difficult year for many in the retail industry.
