LDC Academic Support

Supporting the Next Generation of Retail Leaders and Academics

Part of our mission at LDC is to support learning by “Sharing knowledge to create a better place to be”.

We know how hard it must be for students to find the right information, especially in moments of stress and deadlines. LDC aim to empower the future generation of retail leaders by providing full reports, data & market insights.

Below you’ll find a collection of abstracts from some of the students projects and research we have supported over the last few years.

“The Saturation of the UK Convenience store market”, 2017

In June 2016, it was reported that the UK convenience market is nearing the maximum amount of stores which it can sustain – saturation point. This study investigated the extent to which this was true in the case study of Leeds, West Yorkshire and found that although saturation point may be nearing in some areas, it is clear that large parts of the market are still underserved. Therefore, future growth of the market in some areas will be sustainable.

This investigation offered an exploratory analysis of the spatial distribution of ‘footprints’ left by geo-referencing Twitter users and their potential value for retail centres. Retail related Tweets were identified and their spatial attributes examined in regards to retail centre locations.
