Hello.

We're Retail GeoScore.

Shopping District

Welcome to the Silicon Prairie.


Shopping District

We're based in Des Moines, Iowa.

We've taken the time needed to get things right.

There's no recipe for accurately locating retail

or understanding the dynamics of retail performance.

You need to know the country,

and you have to put in the hours.
