dc.description.abstract The aim of the study was to create criteria to be used to settle retail affairs on a more scientific basis. The study gives an image of the retail situation of January 1967, based on data from all the retail enterprises within the greater Pretoria area. The spatial distribution as analysed, is in the form of a wheel, with the CBD as axle, and other developments as spokes. Almost 37,3 % of retail trade is concentrated in the CBD, while shops are thinly spread or unevenly bunched together in the suburbs. However, there is a tendency towards strategically sited shopping centres, with ample parking space, in the newer suburbs. Speciality stores are mostly found in the CBD; convenience stores are dominant in the other areas, according to the shopping pattern and consumer flow study. Spatial expansion is towards the east and south east, although there are developments in Arcadia and Sunnyside as well, areas which border the CBD. Competitive factors, such as parking facilities, were examined. Correlation co-efficients were analysed, and it was found that "sales per person" is a better criterium of work performance than "sales per square foot". New developments and circumstances, including the growing population of Pretoria, led to predictions of increased competition and recommendations of regular adaptation. en
