Gwyn Rowley (1990) has levelled a number of charges against our earlier article (Davies and Sparks, 1989). These criticisms stem basically from a lack of understanding of the scope and focus of the original article, a misrepresentation of aspects of our work, and an apparent desire on Rowley's part to campaign for a particular source of data on retailing. These criticisms are refuted and Gwyn Rowley's recognition and acceptance of the importance of looking at applications for retail development is welcomed as a step forward in developing an understanding of food superstore development.
