ChainLocations provides curated location data for retail, restaurant, and services chains across Canada and the U.S. This comprehensive database, produced by ChainXY, offers geocoded location data for approximately 1,400 chains in Canada, from single storefronts to companies with hundreds of locations. In addition to providing geographic coordinates for each location, the database offers the name and North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) code for each chain. Location data are collected directly from retailer websites, which undergo a multi-step, rules-based geocoding and verification process to ensure their accuracy. ChainLocations is updated regularly to provide you with the most up-to-date locations.
Since the 2021 Q4 release, ChainLocations includes over 44,000 distributor chain records. Distributors are chains that are not brick-and-mortar locations of a particular brand but sell a particular brand or offer a particular service. (E.g. ATMs, Provincial Colleges of Pharmacists, Retail Distributors (E.g. Under Armour, Fossil, Pandora)).
