Multipurpose Shopping and the Location of Retail Firms

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This paper investigates the effects of multipurpose shopping on spatial competition among retail firms. Multipurpose shopping leads to a dispersion of competing firms even in Hotelling‐type scenarios. The degree of dispersion depends on individual propensities for multipurpose shopping which are determined by the relative costs, demands, and prices for various goods. 1986 The Ohio State University
