As a retailer, you want to optimize your store network. When you receive an offer for a location, you often have to decide quickly. But even if you are considering closing or relocating a shop, you want to know what the consequences may be:
- To what extent is cannibalization an issue, and how does this change with relocation?
- Will other branches benefit from the closure of this store?
- Which postcode areas will generate new sales?
- What effect will the changes have on your total store network?
