High Streets in Crisis as business rates soar

Quote:
THREE shops closed on the high street every day last year as soaring business rates, online competition and a fall in trade hit independent retailers. New research found that nearly 1,500 traditional "bricks and mortar" stores shut their doors for good in towns and villages across Britain in 2017.

Chief executive Alan Hawkins, said: "If I could give one message I'd say 'sort out the rates - it's not fair'.

"It's not as though the high street is finished, but we need some help quickly to make sure we have a rosier future."
