 The Centre for the History of Retailing and Distribution (CHORD) was set up in September 1998 to give new impetus to the study of the history of retailing and distribution, and to act as a point of contact between scholars - both in Britain and abroad - engaged in research within this field, whatever their period of interest, discipline or methodology. CHORD builds upon the interests and expertise of a number of scholars in the Dept. of History, Politics and War Studies at the University of Wolverhampton.
