SRI+® (Nationwide Retail Store Panel Survey)

Retail store sales data collected from approximately 6,000 stores nationwide including supermarkets, convenience stores, home centers/discount stores, drug stores, and specialty stores. SRI+ captures actual sales conditions in stores, so you can use it for brand marketing and/or in-store promotions.
