highstreet woes

the real problem with the highstreet failing is that if the highstreet loses enough (and it'll only take one or two) big players then the highstreet will rapidly die and everyone + dog will lose out on the ability to get anything in town.

the loss of large players snowballs the collapse of smaller retailers in the same area as no one goes there and the traffic quickly diverts elsewhere.

and you can guarentee that once the 'choice' of the highstreet is gone that whatever replaces it won't remain cheap anymore.
