British High Road Is Losing 14 Shops For Every Day

Shops are evaporating in the British high road in a speed of 14 daily, based on new study from PwC.

At the first half 2018, 2,692 stores shut, while 1,569 started - contributing to a net reduction of 1,123.

The closures were mostly seen from the region’s most-affected by internet shopping for example trend and electrical even though a change to “in-home leisure" saw bars carrying a hit and 340 shops at the restaurant, entertainment and catering industry vanished.

A number of the UK's largest retail brands are rocked by financial problems this season, with many forced to shut branches.

House of Fraser lately fell into government following a CVA geared toward cutting prices failed to impress lenders. The series was then purchased by Sports Direct creator Mike Ashley; however he's been not able to conserve all shops.

Meanwhile, the Mother care declared earlier this year it would close 50 stores beneath a CVA, also Marks & Spencer stated it'd shut 100 stores during the subsequent four decades.

Lisa Hooker, customer markets pioneer at PwC, said: “The continuing speed of shop closures reflects the new facts of that a lot people would rather shop on the internet and progressively eat drink and entertain in the home. The high road is adapting to a overcapacity in leisure and retail area resulting in these station changes.

"Openings just are not replacing the closures in a quick enough speed.

"Store closures at H2 because of administrations and CVAs already declared will further measure the circumstance," she added.

"The high road is in immediate need of new methods of thinking and new kinds of retail.

"But it was seen if current packages of service for its high road and discounts in business rates for smaller merchants will probably be enough to excite this."
