    This chapter provides the first comprehensive examination of the impact of retail decentralization on shopping travel and visitation patterns in post-communist Prague. Based on surveys of the current and prior shopping patterns reported in 2001 by shoppers in four recently opened hypermarket malls, the analysis shows how the transition to hypermarkets has affected shopping behaviour, and provides a detailed picture of current shopping trips, including an estimate of their contribution to total travel, and a multivariate analysis of the factors shaping trip length, mode, and frequency.
