The article suggests some factors to consider when finding the best location for a retail business. Initially, one must understand a company's business, culture and longevity to find an appropriate retail site to meet the retailer's specific goals and needs. After understanding the company, it is essential to establish a market strategy. An evaluation of demographics, traffic flow and patterns, co-tenancy, the dynamics of space, asking rent, and even the project developer's viability should all factor in decision-making.
