clone town
 n.— «[Andrew] Simms could be accused of being glib if his approach hadn’t been so successful. In 2002, he coined the term “clone town” to describe the growing homogenisation of British high streets. The Clone Town report by the New Economics Foundation, the left-field thinktank where Simms has been policy director for eight years, touched a nerve about the alienation of modern life.» —“Taking on Tesco” by Alison Benjamin Guardian (United Kingdom) Mar. 21, 2007.
