The Independent Culture
THE pharmacy chain Boots is leading the return of retailers to town centres after their long and ecologically irresponsible flight to the city edges, with stores reached only by roads and cars. Caring for our towns and cities is a 140-page book commissioned by Boots and concerned with how retailers can best help the towns they purport to serve.

A first edition was for the exclusive use of Boots' store managers, but when the company received hundreds of requests for copies it decided to publish a second edition aimed at local authorities, landlords and managing agents.
