oa East African Geographical Review - Some geographic characteristics of permanent retail institutions in Ankole

Volume 1969, Issue 7
  • ISSN : 1937-6812



This paper attempts to briefly summarize data collected over four months of fieldwork in mid-1968. The retail data has been extracted from a larger body of raw information collected as a part of a study on settlement in Ankole. Little, if any, literature that purports to characterize retailing in a local area of East Africa exists in the geographic literature. It is the intention of this paper to present such information for consideration and discussion.
