This paper focuses on the relationship between spatial configuration and pedestrian flows in retail environments. After the importance of predicting pedestrian flows is pointed out, the paper distinguishes two major groups of research: behaviour oriented and configuration oriented. The paper concludes with an attempt to position both types of research towards the types of planning problems associated with retail environments.
