TOWN CENTRES – WILL THEY STILL MEAN BUSINESS IN THE FUTURE?

Subscribe to our podcast via: Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Amazon MusicSpotify

The lockdowns over the past year have piled even more pressure on town and city centre businesses already dealing with the growing popularity of online shopping, and with big names like Debenhams closing down, what could the future look like for the high street?

Cathrine Jansson-Boyd, Consumer Psychologist at Anglia Ruskin University, spoke to our reporter, Chris Penhall about the problems high street retailers were already dealing with before the pandemic hit. Mike Wray, Chelmsford’s Business Improvement District Manager, explains how the city centre is bouncing back, and Tillie Peel, founder of The Pop Up Club, talks about her experience of opening pop up shops in the city.
