​​Who would benefit from the Shopping Mall Trade area data?

  • Developers: critical understanding of areas of over-supply and optimal areas for future development.
  • Retailers/Brands: ideal for understanding the competitive landscape, shopper profiles and optimisation of physical retail networks. In addition, this data can add depth to localized media, marketing strategies and merchandise/menu offerings.
  • Government: Understanding the social needs of people within a mall’s trade area will empower government to provide relevant integrated services within the mall, particularly in non-metro area
  • Economic Development: The provision of shopping centers is a means of providing a catalyst to economic development as people are able to get employment, purchase goods and services and possibly access government facilities.

The format of the shopping mall data allows for the inclusion of other AfricaScope datasets, as well as in-house datasets (eg as sales volumes) in creating a powerful understanding of the characteristics of mall trade areas from a turnover and/or profitability perspective.
