Research released in conjunction with PwC last month revealed that openings on Britain's high streets are reducing as the structure, format and offer of our high streets continues to develop. Whilst our high streets are having a tough time, at LDC we think that this is part of an evolution in the way we use our high streets, and through our continuous tracking of activity, we are seeing green shoots of growth for sectors and brands who are willing to innovate and differentiate themselves. Reuters interviewed LDC's Lucy Stainton to find out a bit more about how high streets are faring.
In the footage, Lucy discusses the research and talks about what retailers need to do to secure their future on Britain's high streets.
