Improving retail in Melbourne

I just recently discovered Linefeed and their latest post lists a series of ideas to improve retail in Melbourne (via Super Colossal). These ideas boil down to four distinct themes, being Local, Format, Kiosk and London Stores. Not sure if I agree with all of their ideas (they may be down to the fact that I’m not much of a shopper) but the thoughts behind Format and Kiosk do interest me the most.
