Community Building Strategies of Independent Co-operative Food Retailers

Morven McEachern, Gary Warnaby

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Academic literature on food retailing has tended to focus on the larger retail multiples, with less attention paid to the small independent retailer. This chapter provides a unique insight into urban independent co-operative food retailers and the complex links they reveal between community, place and social relations. Through a contrasting case-type approach, we extend the concept of community retailing from a sole focus of the local immediate community, to include also a community of values and a supply chain community, thus suggesting a much broader, more diffuse spatiality and ethicality beyond that of the immediate locale.
