Location Dynamics – Retail Footprint

A comprehensive view of retail landscape across the UK

Retail Footprint defines and ranks the potential for over 6,000 centres across the UK. You can see each destination’s market size, catchment, retail mix, market position, consumer profile (Acorn), and channel mix. 

Retail Footprint is unique in the market, because it considers how attractive different centres are to specific demographic groups. We can describe what, who, where, when and why people interact with space because of CACI’s wealth of big data sources, delivering unrivalled insight into the dynamics of each centre – for example, how and when residents, workers and tourists engage with specific destinations.

  • Develop detailed data-led network strategies for expansion, optimisation, right-sizing, format selection, channel integration, local and tailored product ranging

  • Quantify market size, forecast sales and cannibalisation/sales transfer in each centre
