Two-thirds of consumers believe the high street cannot survive in its current form, new data shows.
However, 87% say they would care if it disappeared.
These are just some of the findings in Retail Week’s major new report High Street Rebooted, which polled 2,000 consumers to find out what they really want from their town centres.
We reveal which retailers are most sought after in town centres and the top five is dominated by value retailers, with B&M coming out top.
We also examine whether there is much love left for the high street and what is driving changes in consumer behaviour.
The report, produced in partnership with Valitor, also examines new visions of the high street and the role that digital can play.
It explores what the future holds, which stakeholders need to drive change and, crucially, how technology can make a meaningful difference in creating memorable shopping experiences that will keep customers coming back.
