The hidden impact of improved retail store location planning.
Underpinned by our unique insight into Europe’s retail geography, our Locations & Analytics team brings a detailed understanding of retail venues across the region.
This allows us to assess retail store performance dynamics and roll-out potential for retail businesses of all sizes trading in all sectors (e.g. fashion, beauty, leisure goods, bulky goods, foodservice) and across all venue types (e.g. high streets, malls, retail parks, transport hubs and mixed use).
Our work helps retailers to open the right stores (size, pitch) in the right venues, to maximise sales and profit return. We call this ‘shape of chain’. Our engagements cover:
We also deploy GIS solutions (sales forecasting, cannibalisation analysis, gravity models etc.) and automated management reporting solutions to allow our clients to ‘self-serve’ through a combination of market leading BI tools as well as providing full training and support.

Working with Javelin Group has transformed our approach to retail store planning. We can now produce consistent store appraisals utilising multiple sources of data quickly and easily. In addition, our investment in Alteryx has allowed us to realise many other uses and applications, for example, our Group Finance team use the software to support their store based financial reporting. We’re very pleased to be using Alteryx and working with Javelin Group.
