Betty asks…

How can I cite a physical location APA format?

I went to Bevemo ( a chain liquor store) to collect prices of beer. I then used those in a chart in paper I am writing and how to cite it APA format. How do I cite information obtained from a physical location ( I did not get the numbers from their website)

admin answers:

Nothing other than what you are doing. You would not be "citing" a source as such, so you don't need to use the APA referencing style for this data. As you realize, you are reporting the data of your own original research, not a source created by someone else. To do that, you might have a table or graph of the results of the beer prices (as you have done), and refer to those as you discuss the results, eg. .......(see Figure 1), (see Table 1), etc.

You would obviously name the location/store at some point in the essay, eg. The Abstract, intro, or method, in no particular way, just as you would a normal proper name.

You can see how a typical table or chart of data is formatted in APA style on pages 24 and 25 of this sample paper from the APA website:
