The Buxton Company also created tools that local businesses can use to identify unmet sales opportunityin the area (sales leakage) and to profile local consumer households and their buying habits.
Retail Site Assessments
Evaluation of the retail potential of four different primary trade areas (10 minute drive time trade areas) including trade area maps, detailed profiles of customers within these trade areas, (see "Consumer Profile data" topic for more information), and a sales leakage analysis. All these trade areas overlap and have similar customer profiles, but there are some differences depending on the centerpoint of the trade area selected:
* Central Galt Interchange (Site 1)
* Twin Cities Rd. & Highway 99 (Site 2)
* Old Town Galt (Site 3)
* Walnut Ave. & Carillion Blvd. (Site 4)
Consumer Profile Detail
After reviewing the consumer profiles included in the selected Retail Site Assessments, businesses can find more detailed psychographic information about each of the identified household types or "dominant segments" on the "Mosaic" website.
