Re: Town centres 'must adapt to online shopping'
The one thing that's for sure is everything keeps on changing and any business standing still and not adapting will struggle, I can't possibly see how a high street store can compete on price with an online setup operating from a low cost warehouse.
I think even online stores may suffer in the future as more people source products direct from places like China, India or Brazil.
The stores that I see suffering the most are those that don't actually hold any stock in store, where you have to order! The one big advantage of a high street store surely is that if you want something you can just go and pick it up without waiting also you can actually see the item pick it up and touch it all things that online stores cannot do, even with the greatest photography.
