Abstract

The large-scale migration of inhabitants from Amsterdam affects the suburbs and the city in a number of ways. This exploration of the effects of suburbanization is mainly based on a description of the shopping behavior of the migrants. Empirical data are confronted with a number of theories. The variation in shopping behavior of the suburbanites is related to their residential history. It can nonetheless be demonstrated that for many migrants, shopping in Amsterdam is only one activity of a multi-purpose trip. This leads to the prediction that if and when the migrants become more locally oriented for their social contacts, the retail establishments in Amsterdam will see their economic base decline even further.
