Abstract

Spatial Interaction Models are a widely accepted means of linking retail centres to their local customer catchments. However, without real consumer data to validate the findings, such models remain as mere estimations based on geographic population and store data. Using a spatial interaction model which accounts for both the residential and local workplace populations, the following study seeks to evaluate the extent of which demographic characteristics of estimated retail catchments are an effective predictor of retail health for retail centres in England and Wales. Overall, this case study explores the value of demographics from estimated centre catchments to retail planners.
