Location selection decisions are irreversible for any type of enterprise. Making the right choice is vital. In this work, at the beginning, criteria for location selection in retail sector are determined. Then because of the dependency among criteria we choose ANP method as multi-criteria decision aid. The data are ambiguous and the nature of the problem is dynamic, hence fuzzy ANP is preferred. As the measurement technique of the financial criterion, we used the fuzzy real option value that calculates the risky side of the problem. Fuzzy trinomial lattice method without any future competitor is offered as the solution procedure for fuzzy real option value through its impact on efficiency and accuracy.
