The survival of archaic forms of retailing in rural Malaga province, Southern Spain

Auteur :
BARKE, M.

Description :
The retail environment of 25 settlements in central Malaga province is investigated. A. finds a rudimentary type of retail establishment present in all villages in which the store is nearly indistinguishable from the domestic premises. He believes that this sort of townscape fulfills vital psychological functions - emotional security and temporal continuity. However, modernization of the retail sector there is foreseen, with attendant changes to the social and cultural norms surrounding retailing. - (SLD)
