A resent survey of High Street retailers by Which?...

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-48433692

...gives some predictable results.

They name WH Smiths as the worst retailer in the UK, with Homebase, New Look, the woeful Sports Direct and Clinton Cards not far behind.

They name the best UK High Street retailer as Richer Sounds (again, unsurprisingly). Others that are high up in their rankings include John Lewis, Screwfix, Waterstones and Apple.

The Yorkshire Linen Company has closed it's nineteen remaining stores across the north of England. They had previously closed 8 (including Scarborough) in February, in an effort to keep the business going.

William Hill biting the bullet on the High Street anyway with the closure of 700 shops. I guess more and more people are using the app & website than the unprofitable betting shops.

Northwood, Threave Rovers, Arsenal, Rangers (the real ones, NOT qpr),Watford, Rochdale, queen of the south and a few others.

William Hill are blaming the government for the job losses, stating it was the reduced limit on instant gaming machines to be the reason for the closures, but as you say, shops aren't profitable anymore with gamblers preferring play online.



The feeling of utter devastation when you pick up your mug and realise you already finished your tea.

That will hit all the bookies who have the machines, not just William Hill, I haven't heard of Labrokes, Coral , or any of the other bookies have wholesale closures (yet). In my opinion that excuse is just looking to pass the buck on to someone else.

Reacting to the change in customers' shopping habits.

Shoppers now buy their 'messages' on the day for that day rather than doing whole week shops as was the norm.

I think you have this the wrong way around - aren't the "Metros" the small stores that have replaced the local corner shops? More likely they have killed off the opposition and can now retreat in areas where their hypermarket then becomes the nearest store.
