Route Back to Market
Until such a time that the R number is low small independent retail business with smaller retail footprint may struggle to maintain a significant customer base to ensure profit and longevity. Measures to support such as Rent/Utility Assistance may be required further as it expected that turnover will be down by more than 50%. Additional support to help move existing Bricks and Mortar to Bricks and Clicks would also ease transition to new norm whilst still retaining customers.
Why the contribution is important
Small independent businesses form the backbone and community to local areas. With an ever underdeveloped High Street those that do exist will be lost forever if continued support is not forged to help them trade.
