Location – This will be any of the stores, or aggregate groups of stores, that can be identified and selected from the standard store “location” selector.  The data in the report will be an aggregate of all the stores identified by that selection.

Offer Week – This is a single week selection from the standard calendar.

Offer – This is a selection of one of the offers that was active in the Offer Week selected.  Warning: Although this offer list is filtered to the selected week, it is NOT filtered to the selected store list, and since it is possible to run an offer in a given week but not in all stores there exists the possibility that your selection of Offer and Location might work together to result in a report with no data.

Resulting Data Scope

  • Time – the selected week
  • Product – Items in the offer and all items that sold in the same basket with offer items.
  • Geography – All stores in your Location specification in which the offer was run.


Rows represent items are grouped under 3 headings.

  • Items Included in this Offer – These rows represent data for the items identified in the Offer definition as being on promotion.
  • Other Items in the product Category of the Offer appearing in the Same Basket – These rows represent data for the items that were purchased in the same shopping transaction with at least one item that was on promotion in your selected offer.  Further, these are items that are in the same product Category as the category of the items in the offer.
  • Items in Other Categories appearing in the Same Basket – These rows represent data for the remaining items that were purchased in the same shopping transaction with at least one item that was on promotion.

So, to be a row in this report you had to be an item that was either in the promotion or in the same basket with a promoted item IN A STORE WHERE THE PROMOTION WAS RUNNING in the selected week.
