Impact Studies are used to inform decisions to add additional space and to identify the effect of change on the existing retail offer.

FSP impact studies are more reliable than computer-generated, theoretical models. FSP impact studies are based on actual shopping patterns, as reported by over a million shoppers a year. Results are sense-checked and interpreted within the context of experience of how people shop and how retailers make their investment decisions.

Reliable, well-founded research is essential to investigate opportunities for asset expansion and to present evidence against competing developments.

FSP’s service has proved of value to clients as diverse as small centre managers to the largest retail expansions in the country.

Be prepared for the future and grasp opportunities before they turn into threats. Contact FSP to find out more

  • Manchester City Council have worked with FSP over the last year to understand the City Centre's shopper audience, who they are where they come from, how the profile evolves throughout the year and how we can attract more shoppers to Manchester. The depth of understanding that FSP have provided in terms of Manchester's catchment has helped inform our marketing, regeneration and growth strategies for the City Centre. Their consultative approach really got to the heart of the issues involved in a complex area and helped to facilitate partnership working across different Council departments and external stakeholders. I look forward to continue our working relationship with them in the future. Peter Richards, Insight & Planning Manager, Corporate Communications, Manchester City Council.
