The Local Data Company (LDC) has acquired retail insight business Retail Locations in a move which demonstrates LDC’s continued commitment to supporting investment in the retail market.

The Local Data Company (LDC) is a retail intelligence business. We hold the most comprehensive and up-to-date database of every store and retail location in the UK. We know where every Nando’s, JD Sport and TopShop store is located; when each store opened and closed and the proximity of competitors, how healthy the surrounding area is and its trajectory, local consumer demographics and ‘shopper mission’.

Our proprietary data enables our clients to better understand how locations are being used by consumers and is invaluable to informing strategy, mitigating risk and quantifying market trends. Visit for more information.
