Both Major retail chains and up and coming retailers use DMM to locate and analyze new locations, review existing markets as well as pinpoint the competition

This segment of the industry needs to react quickly to changes in the industry such as store chain closings and openings, the sale of portfolios of shopping centers and malls sales, new developments and construction and properties affected by natural disasters such as hurricanes and floods. The investment portfolios they analyze are affected by this type of activity on a daily basis.
Some examples are: When a major department store chain files bankruptcy or a retailer decides to close all the locations of one of their chains, which centers are affected? Who owns these properties? How much of their property portfolio is affected by closings? What effect will that have on the overall stock value for both the landlord and the retail chain?
Suppliers and service companies who are involved in such things as the sale of security uniforms, recycling services, energy management, stroller rentals and gift card programs use DMM to identify and contact new prospects and sales leads at the individual centers. The DMM Top 50 Portfolio section in the print Directory also allows them to evaluate the size of a company based upon the number of listings they oversee. Use of the DMM data in the electronic formats allows them to search by specific companies and export contact information for marketing and direct campaigns.
