  • FSP information and face-to-face presentations have been instrumental in getting retailers to consider schemes which they would not otherwise have done and this has been successfully converted into lettings which would not have happened in a number of instances.

  • The FSP research helped our understanding of the Park’s shoppers and provided information that assisted our discussions with target retailers. The bespoke reports provide key benchmark statistics and quantify the profit opportunities to retailers. They also help illustrate to landlords the scope for future growth and can formulate part of an asset management strategy.

  • We wanted to build on our understanding of the Menkind customer profile and buying habits. Having this defined view of our customer really means we can develop a product strategy that responds to their preferences and needs. It’s vital that we demonstrate how well we understand our customer through our product range so we will be building this into our strategy.

  • FSP provides a commercial 'reality check' of 'demand' based on actual market analysis and the socio-economic composition of the catchment which then needs to be considered alongside 'theoretical' capacity figures. This provides an added dimension when considering and understanding development proposals and one that tends to be overlooked by many planning and property professionals
