Abstract

At its simplest, the study of geographies of consumption involves analysing how and why people spend their money, and the impacts that this expenditure has on landscape, environment, economy and society. In this article the focus is on shopping – an area of ‘traditional’ school geography – and the aim is to show how a restructured approach to the topic, i.e. from the angle of geographies of consumption – will not only revitalise it, but will also enable significant and valuable links to be made to other areas of the subject of geography.
