During the urbanization process, it is understood that commercial activities occupy essential functions. This research aims to analyze the spatial restructuring of the Londrina agglomerate based on the spatial distribution of commercial establishments, through the processes of decentralization, recentralization and poly (multi) centralization, evaluating how these dynamics converge to the process of urban socio-spatial fragmentation. It is hypothesized that the spatial distribution of commercial establishments can happen in a dispersed and decentralized manner, contributing to the formation of poly (multi) centralities, which directly affects the dynamics of the restructuring of cities and can configure an urban space in process of fragmentation. Thus, it is essential to investigate the spatial strategies of the economic agents responsible for the location of commercial establishments in the city. It is also an objective to detail the displacements for consumption and the importance of forms of urban mobility in the dynamics of spatial distribution of commercial establishments. The methodological procedures will cover consultation, manipulation and geocoding of data from the National Register of Addresses for Statistical Purposes (CNEFE) and the Annual List of Social Information (RAIS); as well as using the National Classification of Economic Activities (CNAE) and carrying out fieldwork. Different tools come together that can result in descriptive analyzes guided by critical theoretical-methodological discussions, aiming to contribute to studies in Urban and Economic Geography in Brazil.
