The structural trend in production agriculture towards fewer and larger farms has had its counter-part in the retailing sector of the state as well. Over the past 30 years, the total retailing pie has increasingly shifted to the larger retailing centers across the State. The smaller retailing centers, particularly, have experienced greater retailing leakage. Moreover, these general shifts have seemed to continue unabated regardless of the overall economic conditions of their regions.
