Esri Data in the News

By Cathy Spisszak

Best Cities for Bargain Shopping

Do you love a good bargain?  Forbes Magazine recently compiled a list of the top 10 U.S. cities for bargain shopping using Esri Shopping Center Data.  Check out Esri Data in the news and to see if your city has made the list.

Esri Data used for Mall Expansion

Esri was also highlighted in the Philadelphia area news, when Esri Data was used to justify an expansion of the King of Prussia mall.  According to the article “Within a 10-mile radius of the Montgomery County mall, 41 percent of households have incomes of $100,000 or greater, according to Esri, a company specializing in geography and demographics. That area is home to more than a half-million people in 220,000 households.  This has helped make the King of Prussia mall the envy of retail landlords nationwide by boasting retail sales of $700 per square foot – a figure so high it is shared by only a small handful of other malls nationwide.” Read more about this here.
