Supermarkets, Grocery trade, Store location, and Inner cities
Abstract:
The purpose of this report was to describe successful supermarkets in low-income inner-city communities in the United States. Fourteen supermarkets in ten cities were studied to identify factors critical to the success of these stores. The report argues that inner-city supermarkets better serve the needs of the poor, because they offer better nutritional alternatives at lower prices than smaller food stores and provide an economic stimulus to the community.
