Geolytix open Supermarket Retail Points - 20th Edition

The 20th version of Geolytix’s open data set; Retail Points, has now been released.

10th May 2021

Amazon opened their first UK Amazon Fresh store in Ealing, London in March 2021. This has been included in our latest version of the open UK Supermarket data set.

Iceland also launched their new convenience supermarket store format, Swift, in March which is another new fascia that has been added to our Retail Points data set. In addition to the new store format, Iceland have continued to expand their Food Warehouse stores this quarter, opening a store at Canvey Island Retail Park in April.

Lidl managed 20 store openings in February including 4 stores in London (Putney, Tooting, Richmond and Hackbridge). This allowed the retailer to meet their target of opening more than 50 stores within the financial year.

February also saw multiple Tesco Express store openings – New Road in Chingford, Albert Embankment in Vauxhall, Lyndhurst High Street and Amersham Road in Hazlemere.
