Spatial aspects of retail development in Russia during the transformation period and the latest trends Abstract The aim of this thesis is to analyze and evaluate the retail development in Russia during the transformation period with a special focus on retail chains in Russia. What regions they focus on, how their expansion took place and whether there is a difference in expansion strategy between Russian and foreign retail chains. These are among the key research areas of this thesis. The top 6 retail chains in Russia have been selected as these represent several types of expansion strategy. The analyzed characteristics of retail chains are: the city and time of establishment in Russia, revenue, number and types of stores, region of presence including region with the biggest concentration of stores, etc. Methods of comparison and mapping are used in the analytical part of this thesis. The results show that the biggest concentration of retail chains, both of Russian and foreign origin, is in the Central Federal District. Foreign retailers prefer to start their business with a focus on the bigger Russian cities, whereas Russian retailers are trying to expand as much as possible throughout all Russian territory and may not always start business in the larger agglomerations in the Central Federal District.

Analýza lokalizačních strategií vybraných maloobchodních řetězců v Praze ABSTRACT This thesis explores the spacial distribution of retail chains within Prague; concentrating on 1) spatial patterns and retail distribution 2) transport accessibility within the vicinity of the store and 3) their proximity to food units. I have discussed the conditions that have shaped the changing face of retail to what it is today. Spatial configuration strategies were used to analyse the distribution of the retail environment. Following this, analysis was conducted at the levels of group, category and individual chains. The results showed retail in Prague was concentrated. However, significant differences were observed within categories and chains. Although food unit coverage is good throughout the city, pockets of areas exist that are not served by a particular store within a preferential distance. Keywords: location strategies, spatial patterns, retail, average nearest neighbor, availability of food outlets
