Field research into which shops are easiest to steal from? "Good food
costs less at [wherever]"...

Why not do a survey about how communication access affects the way
different groups use different shops? John

Let me know *where* you are and I might be able to assist - if it's a
rural areas, for example, it'll be a very different proposition to an
urban one -a nd then it depends how urban.

Why shopping? Yukky and boring, boring, boring in the main. People like
it because they think the data's going to be easy to collect but it
*always* ends up naff. Most shopping studies also end up with dodgy
marks - there are much better things to do you know.

Of course, there can be good ones (Becca!), but they tend to be the ones
which take a slightly different look at things.

Oh, I need to know which exam boards as well.

You Could do what I did - analyse the retail structure of your local CBD
by linking it to the bid rent theory - loads of research can then be
done into land values, pedestrian flows etc.

Oooooh!!!! Ooh! I know this one!! I did... um.. "What was the effect of
such and such out of town retail park on the local town centre's shops."
Great fun but work intensive - I interviewed/questionnaired a proportion
of shop managers, employees and shoppers in each place (there were three
different retail parks plus the city centre in Chester), did land use
maps of each place to show predominance of services and stuff in the
city centre etc etc. Do it it's fun!

PS Sorry about top posting I got excited

Or, to make it a little more geographical, on how a group (such as
visually disabled for example) use the CBD of your nearest town?
There's some interesting stuff that could be done there - which parts
of the CBD are most adapted/leadt adapted. Has the advantage of linking
fairly well to theory and being a bit funky as well - will please a
teacher-examiner no end.

Have to defend the topic here (although I noted and duly appreciated the
mention in the next sentence!) in saying that if you're willing to put
lots of hours in and have a suitable place to do it in, the topic can be
good, but don't expect to do a lot of shopping while you're data
collecting - it just doesn't happen! With a lot of hard work though it
is possible to get good marks

Yes, check out for its effect on south-east London shopping centres,
such as Lewisham and Bromley. It's a major issue in this part of the
world where I live.
