Converting retail space to offices questionable says Retail Gazette there is already spare office space due to work at home Https://www.retailgazette.co.uk/blog/2021/03/should-retailers-launch-office-spaces-if-people-still-work-from-home/ When all the retail gets converted at enormous cost at that the retailers may find far more excess office space which cannot be rented out, its a foolish idea imo as more people can adequatley work from homs and more business will follow suit in due course due in part to advance in technology and video conference. There is no need to be in a room with other people when they can meet up and be part of video or computer technology.

Regarding previous....Richard Proudler16 Mar 2021 1:08PMSince nearly all shopping will be done online, including increasingly groceries, in the very very near future, this may very well just be the new model for ANY shop which survives as bricks and mortar.The use of total clear video cctv and the need to scan as you go in will easily spot a prospective shop lifter.This model in fact already in use in rural Sweden sees totally unpersoned ? stores where the manager is alerted by mobile messaging if things go awry.This could signal the return of local village remote smaller shop units which would be good if they have national price competition price levelsIt's a good thingLess motoring around for time burgling shoppingBut not for low pay shop workers3LikeReplyDe Ja Vu16 Mar 2021 2:15PM@Richard ProudlerA good thing! lol. yes let's give over control of everything essential to the likes of Amazon and big tech! Then when they have total control you will have no options on price, product choice or who then can stop buying food, etc.This is designed to kill off the small independents as has already started with the lockdowns.Wake up World!Daily Telegraph

Marks are rocketing up I can see £2.00 shortly . Great bounce back from £0.90 times. Nowhere better to put money and make money . Wonderfull. Thorntons was always a specialist make and had to be an acquired taste. No point having choc shops when the high street looks like it is dying a death slowly

John Lewis is to cut prices ahead of its reopening but it could be a gimic as there are ever ending sales these days and JL has them a number of times a year. The announcemnt just focuses a mind-set that prices could be lower than normal when the company would have had a mid sesion sale in any event: Https://www.retailgazette.co.uk/blog/2021/03/john-lewis-to-lower-prices-ahead-of-reopening/ MARKS has a ALUMNI network which I didn't know existed, but not which I think will have much relevance Https://www.retailgazette.co.uk/blog/2021/03/ms-seeks-community-manager-as-alumni-network-hits-5000-members/ Of more relevance NEXT aims to be the "OCADO of fashion" !!!!! Https://www.retailgazette.co.uk/blog/2021/03/next-aims-to-become-ocado-of-fashion/ NEXT is the one to watch it doesnt have the same overheads and large stores that MARKS has and has mass appeal, it had the NEXT directory before the advent of the internet and online presence.

Last year saw 10,000 retail store closures but the rot had started before the pandemic, the pandemic increased the severity of store closures and quickened the process up: Https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-56378667 Therw ere simply too many brands and retailers selling the brands in any event and they needed to shrink and then in any event shopping habits were changing due to online sales. As the economy opens more business will have to close down as they are being subsidised by furlough.

G R Umpy14 Mar 2021 12:01PMOne reason for the decline in UK manufacturing was that it was much easier for intelligent people to make money in financial services, so a lot of the best brains went into that rather than manufacturing. That is still largely the case.We import far more than we need to, and it would be better for us if we all tried to buy home manufactured products, or at least not from the EU!5LikeReplyThomas Gordon14 Mar 2021 12:09PM@G R UmpyThe biggest cost in manufacturing today is not Labour, it is energy.  High (and rising) energy costs will continue to hurt UK manufacturing1LikeReplyStefan Reichlin14 Mar 2021 12:10PM@Thomas Gordon @G R UmpySorry Thomas, that is not true.

Was in local M&S yesterday. They have given 30% of their non-food floor space to selling shoes. If you think about it this is a massive market as you really need to try them on and M&S is about the only place you can currently buy shoes.

Should there be a reward for vaccination?MARCH 14, 2021 POST A COMMENTOn March 11th the EU published its weekly death figures from CV 19. Unlike most countries the EU does not give its citizens a daily up date. The sad news was the death toll had exceeded 560,000. This compares with 530,000 for the USA. The U.K. media reporting U.K. deaths daily and US deaths regularly ignored the EU deaths again.We should expect the U.K. CV 19 death rate to continue to plunge as most people at risk get a jab. The U.K. and the US are well ahead of the EU in getting people vaccinated. Shouldn't the UK now enjoy a benefit from this success? Isn't it now safe to let us relax more of the controls? We need to get more services re opened, more leisure and hospitality available with suitable social distancing and air flows.A year has now passed since the government first locked us down. Over that long tine the U.K. has made good progress with treatments and with vaccines. We now have much more understanding of the disease and how to combat it. We need to use these advances to permit more relaxing of the rules and restoration of more business and social activity. It's time to get our freedoms back.... John Redwood
