Expect more:

One in seven shops now vacant across the UK
Retailers call on government to amend business tax rates in response to changing shopping needs and habits

More than one in seven shops are now vacant on UK high streets, retail parks and shopping centres, the highest proportion since at least 2015, as the Covid-19 pandemic ramped up pressure on already weakened retailers.

Fashion stores have been hit particularly hard, with a major shift to online shopping during the pandemic, and a lack of parties, events and nights out to dress up for.

Shopping malls, which tend to house more clothing stores, are now searching for tenants for a fifth of their units, according to research from the Local Data Company and the British Retail Consortium.

Yes everything now comes to you in a cardboard box. No need to step outside your house, just want the government and the big corporations want - total control.
