John is a member of the Centre for Advanced Retail Studies (CARS) and has a number of teaching and research interests in: retail branding; consumer and environmental psychology; retail location; the competiveness of retail economies; retail strategy; omni-retailing and design/architecture. His primary research interest considers the role of consumers’ perceptions of design and architecture in retail brand building.
My primary research interest concerns retail competitiveness. i employ two main approaches to investigate this research interest: 1) the analysis of the contributions of in-store experiences to retaiers'l brand building efforts; and 2) the macro-policy consideration of New Zealand's distribution system and its ability to competively offer sustainable choice and format diversity to consumers.
