Trade Area

An area delineated about a central or dominant location, comprising a zone that is dependent upon production output from that location to meet internal demand, whose outermost boundaries are defined in terms of the presence or absence of interactions with that central or dominant location (for example, a localized area over which some specific activity or transaction takes place).  Note that in central place theory context, the terms trade area and range are used interchangeably.  Also see range.
