Independent Stores in the UK record first rise in 4 years

Local Data Company analysts have found that during the first half of 2021, the UK saw the highest rate of independent store openings since 2017, indicating a greater demand for locally run enterprises based in communities across the country.

Despite the hardships of coronavirus lockdowns, there have been many causes for optimism when it comes to the performance of our high streets. In particular, the adoption of hybrid working models and the popularity of staycations has prompted greater interest and interaction with town centres and local services, as visitors and residents alike have rediscovered their surroundings.ย 

The significance of these trends on our retail environments is undeniable, and it is vital that communities are able to adapt and benefit from the emergence of these new audiences as they continue their recovery. Connectivity has proved time and again to be a priority – having already played a significant role in regeneration strategies in town centres across the UK, it is clear that free public WiFi contributes to a better-connected society and more agile interactions between people and businesses.ย
