RIBEN Directors present findings from University of Southampton study at All-Party Parliamentary Group for Town Centres

Profs Neil Wrigley and Michelle Lowe present findings from the Southampton study 'The Impact of New Generation Corporate Convenience Stores on Small Towns' at the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) meeting for Town Centres.

The APPG meeting, which took place on 21st November 2012 at the House of Commons, was chaired by Marcus Jones MP, and brought together parliamentarians and industry experts to debate the changing face of retailing in the UK.

The study provides rigorous, up-to-date research relating to the impacts of small-store corporate food retail entry within a cross-section of five small towns in southern England. The full report and executive summary are available to download from our website.

Also presenting research on town centre retailing and its evolution was James Miller from Experian, UK. The White Paper, entitled 'Town Centre Futures 2020', prepared by Experian in partnership with the Association of Town Centre Management (ATCM), sets out how the UK's town centres will have changed by the end of the decade and what town centres, high streets and retailers need to do to survive and thrive. The White Paper is available to download here.
