that's the High Street pretty much gone now
at least all the on-line shoppers will be able to listen to their downloads/watch their DVDs/wear their new clothes all day long now they don't have a job to go to
save a couple of pounds and lose your job - not exactly the greatest use of the internet so far
the only ones left are the tax dodgers
Anything but the triumph of market forces would amount to protectinism and ultimately fail.
Joined up thinking though of removing impedence to High Street shopping would be sensible. When we holidayed in Normandy I didn't pay a penny to park the car in any town anywhere.
It works for Supermarkets; free convenient parking would also improve High Street footfall nationwide.
Yep, I still support our vilage blacksmith though I'm running out of places to keep the ornamental steel and horseshoes. Perhaps if I owned a horse and didn't live in a flat ...
ID: Try suggesting free parking to any local council! Its one of their biggest incomes. They could not give a toss about the High Street as long as there is enough in the coffers to pay their pensions - Useless bastards!
I have a cunning plan to make high street shops more successful again.
Run down the Post Office so their service is so shit that no-one would dare trust their orders being delivered.
Do you think this could work? Maybe someone else has already come up with this?
