ABSTRACT
Earlier in 2006, the Institute undertook research aimed at exploring the past experience and future implications of structural change in retailing for shopping patterns in central London, at the request of Transport for London (Tf L). The need for the research arose from interest in the longer term past and future geographical contexts for shopping behaviour and movement in the capital. The research is based on core conceptual research, supported by a new analysis of shopping trip data, together with the evidence and opinions sought from practitioners and others with knowledge and experience of retailing in London. In this short article, we summarise the main findings of the study. We are grateful to TfL for supporting this work.
