- We rely on POI metadata to track store openings and closings, and we are especially interested in understanding open/close dates for branded POIs. It can take more than a month to infer open/close dates, so we report brand open/close metrics on a one month delay.
- In this release, we flagged 1,788 brands with at least one store closure in October 2022 and 2,024 brands with at least one store opening in October 2022:
