Esri mapping platform to aid Hy-Vee's location decisions

Supermarket chain expands use of geographic information systems' services

REDLANDS, Calif. — Midwestern supermarket chain Hy-Vee is expanding its use of a mapping platform made by geographic information systems firm Esri to aid its real estate decision-making, Esri said Wednesday.

Esri said this would allow Hy-Vee to enhance its site selection, using location analytics that combine demographic and psychographic data.

"We are able to combine data and improve analysis to get a much clearer understanding of new and existing markets," Hy-Vee SVP store development Andy McCann said. "We know how geography plans a significant role in consumers' choices and behaviors. Using location analytics, we can maximize the way we respond to and understand our customers, stores and market presence."
