Few decisions are more strategic and have longer-term financial and operational implications than a facility location decision. With the rise of reliance on consumer-centric technology, online shopping, and last mile delivery logistics, it has become even more critical to create and manage strategic site selection analytics prior to securing a brick-and-mortar retail location. It makes no difference if you are expanding, consolidating, or just monitoring market performance, location analytics is the first and most critical area of focus to avoid million-dollar mistakes in brick & mortar site selections.
DMM’s comprehensive dataset, when integrated into many different platforms, creates one of the most robust and streamlined vantage points into the assessment & impact of retail locations in relation to major shopping centers in the US & Canada.

√ Pinpoint Locations, Density of Targets & Secondary customers.
