Why Backing Hull’s High Street Matters

Why Backing Hull’s High Street Matters

2018 wasn’t a happy year for the UK’s high streets and Hull wasn’t immune to this decline. Maplin, Sports Direct, Ann Summers, Peacocks, Toys R Us, in total 36 retail businesses closed in Hull in 2018, taking with them hundreds of jobs and local amenities. To some this is just the inevitable result of customers shifting their buying habits online. Others point to the cost of running physical stores – especially when it comes to business rates - while still others believe it’s just because these businesses have failed to offer what customers want.
