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.

  • 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.

  • 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 needed a clear understanding of the prioritised location opportunities for Acuitis to assist leasing negotiations and management planning. It was important for us to understand, in detail, which towns and cities offered potential for Acuitis and what levels of turnover might be expected. FSP delivered everything we needed and provided useful tools for us to review and adjust our thinking as the roll-out progresses.

  • We wanted to confirm the growth opportunity that we believed to exist at DOS. FSP is highly regarded in the sector and understands outlet centres from the ground up – just the independent view we needed. FSP’s research confirmed the scale of untapped potential at DOS and gave us confidence in completing the acquisition. Having purchased DOS, we are now actively engaged in delivering the full potential of this exciting investment.

  • 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.
