Featured Map - September 2014
This #map, made with #Maptitude 2014, highlights regional variations in the number of car dealerships. Cities with more nearby businesses are shown with larger circles.
Maptitude includes the locations of several categories of vehicle dealerships including those for used cars, new cars, motorcycles, and trucks. These can be used when siting new facilities, for example, or in looking at regional coverage such as the aggregate count of dealerships by ZIP Code, County, or State.
Dollar Store Mergers
Maps created with Maptitude http://MappingSoftware.com/ by
With the recent discussion in the news regarding consolidation in the “dollar store” industry and which dollar store chains would be a better suitor for Family Dollar, the following maps have been created. The first three maps show the spatial diffusion of each respective dollar store chain. Dollar Tree with 4,900 stores has the largest diffused presence nationwide with a presence in the Pacific Northwest. Dollar Tree’s spatial diffusion is closely followed by Family Dollar (8,100 stores) and Dollar General (10,000+ stores), as far as a nationwide presence goes. Dollar General has the greatest presence of stores in the southeast. I have also included two maps showing a potential Dollar Tree / Family Dollar merger and a Dollar General / Family Dollar merger. With either potential merger there would be some overlapping markets which would most likely require the divesting of some locations. A Dollar Tree / Family Dollar merger makes the most sense from a total number of store locations perspective.
