In light of COVID-19’s unbelievable and global impact on lives and businesses, we repurposed our tools to help our industry make decisions in the face of new and challenging market conditions. LocateAI’s Retail Tracker monitors retail traffic at 3 million points of interest, spanning brands, industries, and geographies, across the United States.
The primary purpose of the Retail Tracker is to answer the industry’s most pressing questions regarding COVID-19, including:
- How does the decrease in retail traffic at my business compare to other businesses in my industry and in my area?
- Are any businesses or industries seeing an increase in traffic during the pandemic? For example, are traffic patterns at urgent care and drug store locations insightful to the spread of the virus by geography?
- How is traffic changing in different geographies over time as each geography addresses the spread of COVID-19?
- How might the recovery of my business look and how does that compare to other businesses in my industry and/or in my area?
The questions above will be addressed via weekly updates to this tool, and additional questions will be explored in the future. If you want to be notified when we update this data, you can subscribe to updates here.
