High Street Shopping in terminal decline?

Looks like the intervention of High Street guru Mary Portas has had little effect on the downward trend in high street shopping.

This also comes as Little Chef are also in serious trouble. They famously had superchef Heston Blumenthal to address their concerns and create a new menu for the 21st century. However, it failed also. http://www.guardian.co.uk/business/2013/may/26/little-chef-bids

 

Personally I don’t think it is just online shopping that is killing the high street – but crucially transport links. Perhaps the UK should copy the French, as Jeremy Clarkson advocated, and remove all the double yellow lines to allow people to park in town and city centres. Controversial? Perhaps. But how else will we save our high streets?
