The retail industry in Scotland

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

    Abstract

    The retail trade in Scotland is probably the industry with which everyone has, at least superficially, the greatest familiarity since we are all shop customers to a greater or lesser extent. Retailing is also one of Scotland's largest industries. This article utilises both the Retail Inquiry and Fraser Survey datasets to analyse some aspects of the economics of the Scottish Retailing Industry. Section 1 analyses structural characteristics of the industry while Section 2 appraises its performance and efficiency. Finally, Section 3 examines retail costs structures.
