This study investigates the notion of deliberate concentration and targeting of deprived neighbourhoods by alleged antisocial retailers (AASRs) in England at neighbourhood geography. To measure deprivation, this paper adopts the principles of geodemographics to build an area classification using variables extracted from the 2011 UK Census Data. It thereafter compares the location of both AASRs and food and grocery retailers (FGRs) across the different classification to understand the similarities and differences in their location preferences in order to investigate the notion of targeting ascribed to these retailers. Results reveal complex patterns and emphasise the need for micro-scale analysis.
