Independents take a front seat in the transforming high street…

Pure London have shared an article by Down Your High Street detailing that despite a decline in general psychical store footfall, independent retailers are continuing to open and blossom. The publication details how many independent retailers have begun to evolve, moving into online practices, accepting the change with open arms. A positive message in somewhat troubling times “The high street is here to stay, and independent retailers are leading the way.”

The Rise of the Indies

Drapers published an article today informing that despite difficult conditions on the high street, the number of independent retailers in the UK is forecast to creep up 0.3% by 2023. This is a positive message found during trying times as news emerges that the gap between the number of stores closing and those opening on the UK’s top 500 high streets has reached record levels. This is a reminder that although online shopping is reshaping the makeup of traditional shopping spaces, threatening great change to the high street, the independents still remain strong. We are excited to say that we are looking forward with a focus on aiding the growth of this market!
