These are usually found in housing estates. At the top of the hierarchy are shops that sell high order goods (also known as specialist goods) such as furniture or jewellery. These shops are usually found in large centres or in the CBD. The catchment area describes the area from which people are likely to come to buy goods. Shopping centres have a wide catchment area, whereas corner shops have a small catchment area.
