Abstract
Superstore retailing has been the focus of much study. Most research has been based solely on trading superstores. A complete analysis of the development of the format however, has also to include refused or withdrawn applications. A database for planning applications for superstores is used here to provide an analysis of superstore development processes in Britain, disaggregated by phases of development, location and company.
