Abstract

If ubiquity and physical prominence are a guide, retailing is one of the most dominant representations of economic activity in typical western space economies. With an eye towards a possible future of technological disruption, this thesis explores how retail activity has been spatially and morphologically expressed in the urban landscape over time. The research employed a qualitative-dominant, sequential mixed methods form of inquiry in four research papers. Two papers were mainly theoretical in nature and two were empirical investigations. The thesis concludes with a conceptualisation of the contemporary retail environment and prognoses about retail landscapes in the future.
