Abstract:Judging by the outflow of purchasing power from African townships to white areas the number of Africans shopping in white areas is considerable. This has lately attracted the attention of the authorities. Various solutions have been suggested, but the problem is far too complex to be solved in the short run. Aim of this paper is to examine more fully the provision of shopping facilities for Africans in the townships in white areas, with special reference to the shopping and spending pattern of the African, and the resultant flow of purchasing power to white areas. The large-scale capital investment in white business areas in order to provide for the wants of African shoppers, problems associated with the African entrepreneur, and legislation in this regard are discussed, as well as - briefly - an alternative approach. Notes, table.
