Nothing to do with generations shopping on line now then and not the high street, or Edinburgh wool being laden with debt. Rising commercial rents etc. You look at spending on line this Christmas it won’t have dropped from last year.
Most people’s jobs are secure, record low interest rates etc
The vaccines are the game changer next year, as it gives stability and confidence which any business likes as it can invest.

@hector we are in for a boom over the next 10 years...as soon as people are released from these shackles you won't have ever seen spending like it...sharpen your trowel and get ready to earn some serious wedge.

PS the stores your mention were long gone years ago. Name a viable business that has gone in the last year?

The high Street was gone years ago. Nothing to do with covid, business rates are stupidly high. They kill shops and pubs thats why every Street is full of charity shops, they pay a fraction of proper business rates but council's and mp's can't see it. Rant over lol!

That I’ve said is correct look it up. Thousands of jobs going is a travesty, but I think covid on top of all that finished them off.
what you said was correct owls, the high street was going down before covid, thanks to technology, but what covid did was to speed there downfall much quicker

although they will not admit it publically, chairmen and chief executives of companies, will be pleased that this virus gives them a chance to have people working from home so saving them the costs of operating offices, rent/electric/rates etc, they will be monitoring the progress, can it all work without an office, and because it is working,inevitabally there will be jobs lost, and the unions can not do anything as the chairmen will point to this virus , and as you quite rightly say kinky, it is a perfect storm of an excuse, technology and the internet are here to stay, different world now,

Evolution. Move with the times or go under. Simple as that. I have had a few customers mentioned there having this work done purely in the savings made from fuel cost since working at home and also having to look at how bad the house is now there inside it so much. So we have to be grateful for Small mercies.
