Thinknum’s “Stores” dataset allows users to overlay and calculate proximity and density of competitor overlap of store locations between thousands of public and private companies. Our demographic mapping tool enables profiling of store locations based on US Census and BLS demographic metrics. Store locations are indexed from the company’s own website. This dataset is comprised of whitespace, a function that will enable users to see new innovative opportunities.
Nearby Competitor Function
Utilize the nearby competitor function to analyze the number of competitors that exist within a user defined radius of a particular store.
Let's take stores offering Deliveroo as an example. Type in a competitor either by ticker or entity followed by a user defined radius (in miles), click "Apply" to analyze.
For each Deliveroo store in the dataset, a new column called "Competition #1" will be created. This column shows the number of stores signed up for Just Eat within a 0.1 mile radius of stores signed up for Deliveroo.
In order to visualize the competitor overlay in Map view, first group by "Competition #1" and then by "Coordinates".
Simply switch to Map view and use the "Change colors" tab to color coordinate the competitor overlay.
