Although the nature of the magnet may vary from environment to environment --department stores dominate in traditional town and city centres, supermarkets hold sway in neighbourhood shopping complexes and restaurants do likewise in festival malls -- the studies of micro-spatial shopper behaviour are as one in the key, customer generating function of the magnet stores and the all-important influence they exert on shopper circulation patterns.
These comprise such well-known rules of thumb as: place the magnet stores at opposite ends of the mall and line the intervening space with smaller outlets; ensure that the main entrances and anchor stores are sufficiently far apart to pull shoppers past the unit shops; avoid culs de sac if at all possible as they inhibit the free flow of shoppers; place service outlets on the side mails close to the entrances and exits; keep pet shops and dry cleaners away from food shops, and food shops separate from outfitters; and, achieve an even distribution of shoppers in multi-level centres through the judicious arrangement of escalators and eating facilities and by manipulating the tier at which consumers enter the complex |24~.
Shoppers do indeed gravitate towards the magnet stores, outlets in culs de sac tend to underperform, the upper tiers of multi-level centres suffer from reduced pedestrian flow unless remedial action is taken and, not least, the clustering of compatible shop types is undoubtedly good for business |25~.
