This paper examines the diverse trajectories of firm relocation in the apparel industry in the global, regional, and local context. The analysis applies this framework to the apparel industry in the city of Ningbo, which is one of the biggest apparel clusters in China. Through an analysis of several case studies, we show the articulation of global, regional, and local factors that are co-shaping apparel firm relocation processes. We also show that the extent to which these factors affect a firm’s spatial strategies is highly dependent on the firm’s characteristics. Lastly, this paper examines the opportunities for local suppliers generated by firm relocation
