About this book
Retroscapes, commercial environments that waken past times and places, are a ubiquitous manifestation of modern marketing. They come in various shapes and forms, from study restaurants and flagship stores (Planet Hollywood, Niketown) to festival malls and new urbanist communities (Faneuil Hallway, Disney's Celebration). This engaging work is the first book devoted exclusively to the subject. Time, Order, and the Market covers a diverse array of retailing milieux, in a number of different countries, at a brand of spatial scales, and from various evaluative perspectives, both pro and con. The contributors are all well known expert commentators, and the editors have published extensively on retromarketing and servicescapes individually. Together they offer a unique take on a subject with which everyone can identify.
