New horizons in retail geography: special issue editorial

Alexandra Dales, Jennifer Ferreira

Research output: Contribution to journalEditorialpeer-review


In this special issue of the International Review of Retail, Distribution and Consumer Research, New Horizons In Retail Geography, we present five papers which explore a variety of aspects of retail activity set in geographically diverse contexts. By chance, the research included has been produced by scholars in geographically diverse locations, from Australia, to the Czech Republic, Iran, and the United Kingdom. The purpose of this special issue is to highlight new streams of research that fall within the theme of retail geography and draw attention to the value of incorporating geographical concepts and insights into retail analyses. Geographical perspectives involve sensitivity to spatial-temporal change, scale (from local, national, regional to global), the role of place (geographically and culturally diverse contexts), and the spectrum of environmental, social, political, economic, and institutional processes that combine to shape retailing.
