One of the reasons UK high street traders may be finding it increasingly difficult is because of the twin effects of rising property values - increasing rents and business rates. I used to live near a small market town where much of the town centre was owned by a couple of big landlords - their response to dwindling returns was to ratchet up the rents which led to further closures and relocations and the town centre is now just a dead zone of bistros and boutiques, banks and estate agents. The market has changed and traders cannot rely on footfall alone.
