Displaying a wonderful array of visually tempting and delicious produce, staffed by friendly and knowledgeable experts, a whole new generation of stylishly designed food shops are emerging. Conveniently located, they are often epicurean magnets for local communities or centrally placed meccas for cosmopolitan customers. Whatever their location, however, they all appeal to our eyes, nose, ears, taste and touch; because we shop with our senses. They also connect to something more vital, whether we are aware of it or not - our emotions. Designers of food shops are not just charged with the responsibility of creating a good-looking space, they also most aptly and discreetly push shoppers' mental buttons, triggering their needs, desires and aspirations, by a marriage of design and psychology. This book is a unique opportunity to browse thirty-three fabulous food shops, the majority built since 2000, in Britain and Continental Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia and North America. They not only look marvellous, but sell some of the finest fresh and prepared produce in the world.
"It offers a unique opportunity to browse 33 food shops across the world." (The Grocer, October 2006) "ultimate guide to food shopping" (Foodie, December 2006) "...photographs are well-displayed, full of colour...show such a range of fresh and interesting food that you immediately feel hungry." (The Journal, January 2007)
