Geography and Retailing
Supermarkets in the UK are beginning to realise that there is a huge market to exploit with the large number of East European migrants who have settled in the UK since the expansion of the EU. In Dublin recently, I noticed a whole range of stores POLSKI SKLEP, which were opened to cater for the Polish community, probably BY the Polish community.
This BBC article:
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/business/5332024.stm
has details on this trend.

"Tesco will start selling its own Polish range this week, ranging from borsch and salt sticks to delicacies such as cabbage-based dish golabki and flaki, a popular soup. Asda is expected to follow suit next month."

There could be around 600 000 Poles in the UK.
