Catchment Models

Retail Centres & Catchments

  • Retail Footprint is CACI's gravity model that defines catchments and calculates comparative goods expenditure and residential shopper populations for over 4,500 retail centres across the UK.
  • Each retail centre is uniquely assessed by combining all the factors that affect performance, including the quality and quantity of retail provision, centre function, and level of competition.
  • The use of aggregated mobile phone location data, credit and debit card data from a leading bank and extensive face-to-face research gives a unique perspective on the shopping patterns of consumers rather than relying on self-completed surveys.
  • The retail provision in each centre is broken down into 'premium', 'mass', and 'value'. 
  • The Retail Footprint database summarises all this information as well as the potential expenditure for each centre, with a breakdown of residential, worker, tourist and online, giving users unparalleled access to robust and detailed retail centre information.
