Description :
This article measures the impact of agglomeration on productivity through evidence from Chilean retailers. It shows that density could increase or decrease productivity depending on the relative extent of increased competition versus productivity gains, as consumers choose where to shop based on their interests in reducing shopping time (transport costs) and comparison shopping (product quality and pricing). Results indicate that density has a differential impact depending on the store itself and the mix of stores nearby.
