Retail Consulting Services

An introduction to our Retail Consulting team

Introduction

Services for Retailers

CWM's Retail Consulting team provides strategic location planning services to retailers, financial institutions and private equity, aimed at helping them to optimise their portfolios (whether free-standing store, concession, wholesale or e-commerce), maximise profit margin, and de-risk investment - achieved through a combination of data, analytics, and market knowledge.‎

Our services for retailers include catchment modelling, demographic and shopper segmentation analysis, competitor and adjacency mapping, door turnover and profitability forecasting via multiple regression analysis, cannibalisation and accretion modelling, COVID impact assessments, halo effect forecasting, and data visualisation through the construction of fully bespoke interactive desktop models.

Services for Property Investors

CWM’s Retail Consulting Team works with property investors, local authorities and BIDs, advising on retail and property strategy. Given our experience working with retailers, we have great insight into retail centre trading performance, future retailer requirements and target customers. This experience is brought to bear in any work we conduct for clients. We actively leverage the close relationships we have built with retailers in both consulting and brokerage to provide due diligence/feasibility analysis for investment - and actionable asset management strategies - for our landlord clients.

Our work encompasses analysis of catchment potential, shopper demographics and segmentation, retail and tenant mix strategy and turnover and affordable rental potential. We regularly conduct retail needs/feasibility studies, tenant gap analysis and health checks, catchment/demographic analysis, consumer research, and turnover and affordable rental income forecasting.
