Formatted abstract Shopping centres are an integral part of today's economy and as such offer an ever-increasing range of services to the consumer. Shopping centres are a familiar part of the urban landscape creating highly visible and highly accessible nodes within the urban fabric. They have the ability to shape our daily behaviour and also to affect the location of and demand for other land uses. This paper discusses the spatial dimension in retail structure, and focusses on the process of attraction whereby consumers are drawn to a shopping centre. This dilemma of 'attraction' works from both ways, that is, from the market side and also from the consumer side. This paper examines some traditional theory relating to the spatial dimension in retailing and also examines those spatial (and some non-spatial) characteristics exhibited by a centre that contribute to its level or 'amalgam of attraction'.
