843 – The High Street

M&Co is one of the clothing stores in the high street. As I was out for my lunchtime walk I walked past the store, and I heard a couple talking. The lady said “Oh no, M&Co is closing.” I hadn’t even noticed the two big signs in the window.

This once again triggered a slew of thoughts about the state of high streets in the UK (and anywhere else in the world?) I’d quite like to do a bit of counting;

  • How many ‘Establishments’ are there on the street?
  • What types are there?
  • How many are open?
  • How many empty units are there?

Every establishment closed is a sadness, and addds to a feeling of being run down, as if the town is losing energy. What can be done?

It appears that one type of shop that does appear to be doing well, are those that serve drink and food. What about turning empty shops in to housing units? Would that even work?

It’s just sad to see.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
