Will Online Shopping Be The Death Of Our High Streets
Posted by Administrator : Sunday 3rd March 2013
ARE YOU AN ONLINE SHOPPER AND A BARGAIN SURFER? We do not know to what extent the increasing activity of online shopping will eventually have on our Wycombe based high street retailers but some predict it may end the high street shopping as a whole in the future.
The number of local and national online shoppers increase year on year and online shopping booms over the Christmas periods. This is has led to many main high street retailers either shut up shop or attempt to move to an online only model in a bid to keep up with the times.
However as this online shopping spree continues online, it could force the high street shops both large and small to close their doors, which for the local community could mean jobs losses and redundancies.
We believe in supporting all local retailers and local high streets.
