Abstract: This dissertation explores two main topics: first, it asks how retail frms interact with each other at close quarters; and second, it explores how students beneit from having more choice in the decisions to choose a secondary school. Both topics have a spatial dimension: retail firms compete with other retail firms who are nearby and, as we establish, students consider commuting times as an important selection criterion so they choose schools which are closer more frequently. These aspects motivate the reference to the spatial dimension of choice and competition in the title of this dissertation.
