How do I place an order?Simply enter your email address and add the report to your basket, then click on the cart and follow the checkout process to access your report. It will automatically download once payment is confirmed. You can download all purchased reports in your membership area at any time.
Can I download these reports more than once?Yes. Unlike a supermarket where you pay once and then have to pay again, your purchased reports remain in your membership area for your viewing needs.
What format are the reports sent in?All reports are sent in PDF format.
What payment methods do you accept?We accept all major credit and debit cards via Stripe, our payment processor. We also feature the ability to pay via Google Pay, and Apple Pay. Where this is available, it will appear as an option on the product page. We can also generate an invoice and accept payments via BACS. We will distribute reports upon receipt of a valid purchase order from your company. For any other payment methods, please don't hesitate to get in touch to discuss.
Is it safe to shop online?Of course. We utilise fully secure server technology and our payment processor, Stripe, is a world leader in payment processing and processes millions of transactions every single day.
Is there a discount for buying multiple reports?Yes, we offer 5% when purchasing three individual reports, 10% off four individual reports and 15% when buying five individual reports. Note that the discount is only available for purchases made via our research store and will be automatically applied at checkout.
Once we have purchased our report, can we ask follow up questions?Absolutely. Please email us and we will answer queries on your report and the subject matter, including any follow-up queries you may have.
What types of reports do you produce?Broadly speaking, we have two categories of reporting. We produce reports on our store visits, which include insight, analysis, and imagery from notable and concept stores. We also produce a full end-to-end view on key seasonal events with the most detailed perspective available in the market today. We will produce further reports on emerging trends in the industry if we feel that such reports would generate value for our clients.
Can I have a refund?Please ensure that you read everything on the site about your purchase. If you are unsure, contact us so we can guide you further. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the information that we distribute and the automatic download technology that we deploy upon purchase, we can't offer a refund once this process has been initiated.
Is there any form of disclaimer attached to your reports?Absolutely, glad you asked! Our reports are not endorsed, nor approved by any retailer who is featured via one of our store visits, our visits are unannounced and conducted in the same way that a customer would visit a store. Equally, our research is independent and any findings and/or observations are just that, they do not represent advice, nor guidance on the relative performance of any retailer(s) featured within the site. All trademarks remain the property of their respective owners.

Working with Steve definitely made Walmart better.

Bespoke Reports

Whilst we have a wealth of reports from our store visits and seasonal event overviews, there's always more to say, and infinite ways to combine imagery. Perhaps you want to showcase a particular category, from a specific year, or a specific tier of products plus anything from a particular country... the number of combinations is endless.

We understand that requests come in all shapes and sizes. We think of our images as the raw material, and, once given a request or brief, we're able to use our imagery, combined with our insight, to craft something that will not only satisfy your immediate requirements, but will be something that you can treasure for many years to come (or at least until you get another request from a client or a stakeholder.)

Don't waste time trying DIY, trust Grocery Insight to help your business.
