SO WHO OR WHAT DO WE BLAME?

"CLOSING DOWN", "TO LET", "FREEHOLD FOR SALE"
Any of these familiar?
Let me quickly add we are not listed under any of them.
NO, it is the HIGH STREET that is suffering.
We are told that the internet is destroying the retail shops, and not only the small or local ones.
Well, I accept it is playing a large part, but I do not believe it is the only reason.
So far the last few days have kept many people indoors waiting for the rain to stop.
But, it is not just the weather, think about car parking charges. Is it a coincidence that parking the car will likely cost more than the postage and packaging charge for an on line purchase?
And I haven't even taken account of congestion and traffic jams.
What about service? Have you noticed a change in the attitude of shop assistants. Apart from the smiling faces of those in the supermarkets whose jobs are relatively secure, I am finding more and more those on a knife's edge wondering if they will have a job next week.
I think I will stop. I am depressing myself.
Let me try and find a cheery picture.
Until next time,
Albert.....
