Gotta Keep On Top If You Want To Keep Your Shop!
Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by Nar2

Advantages: Offline: A chance to socialise, bargain hunt, taking time with shopping, Online: quick service.
Disadvantages: Shop keepers apathetic to change, Online shopping can lead to fraud, poor delivery services

Seven years ago whilst going through teaching training university and holding down three jobs, I can’t quite believe I also found time to work at a Pound store. I was identified to take on an assistant managerial position, which then led to learning how t ... Read review

Ty Kukana, I have re-edited my closing statement. However, I don't think there is a clear answer to "Will online shopping kill off our high street," though. There are suggestions here to shop keepers and franchises on how they can turn around based on my observations. Evidently with parking restrictions put in place plus high costs of rents, shops are suffering. I have also identified pros and cons with each. by Nar2

Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by SalvadoreHushpuppie

Advantages: Real world shopping is here forever
Disadvantages: online shopping no comparison

I am a great believer in what goes around comes around. Yes its true to say that on-line shopping has had a massively detrimental effect on the High Street. However if like me you like nothing more than visiting the shops of a Saturday/Sunday afternoon fi ... Read review

Not death, just different.
Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by ryanando

Advantages: Deals, deals, deals
Disadvantages: a smaller high street

Deal or no deal? Shopping can be great fun, especially if you actually have the money to do it. Most of my shopping consists of carefully checking balances and seeing if I can squeeze out a little extra treat so I tend not to enjoy shopping much at ... Read review

Hustle, Bustle, Home Shopping, Identity Theft... Oh My!
Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by Scotlass712

Advantages: Convenience of a relaxed, at home shopping experience.
Disadvantages: Loss of jobs, identity theft

While few the things excite me more than dealing with traffic, parking, crowds, queues and people who stop in mid aisle for no apparent reason, the idea of shopping from the comfort of my couch is somewhat enticing. Online banking, movie watching, ... Read review

Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by cr01

Advantages: Our town centres could look and be better at the end
Disadvantages: We have to get there

There’s no doubt that the internet has altered how we socially interact with each other and how different the availability of some items have changed. This twin change is already impacting upon the shape and look of our high streets; however to my mind ho ... Read review

Don't blame online shopping for the demise of the high street
Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by alliewallie

Advantages: There's more choice and better value to be had by shopping online
Disadvantages: It's a shame the high street has to suffer, but I wouldn't blame online shopping purely for that

I do not consider myself a fan of online shopping, sometimes it's necessary and often the biggest selection is online but I like to shop on the high street too and think it's sad that every time I go shopping more and more shops are closing. BUT IS THAT ... Read review

Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by rolandrat123

Advantages: Shopping in town is fun and sociable
Disadvantages: Internet shopping is easy and quick

Is the High Street Dead? Well I must confess I come to this argument from a different angle as I very seldom get to visit the shops these days - not from choice but through illness. However over past years I have seem the High Street on one of our ... Read review

Death of a High Street? Not Just Yet...
Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by littleowlski

Advantages: There are benefits to shopping online AND locally. Small, alternative communities can thrive.
Disadvantages: Some towns are becoming virtually deserted.

Online shopping has supposedly exploded in recent years, bringing up a familiar cry of: “It’s killing our high streets!” Echoing sentiments of home-taping killing music, video killing the radio star and so on... I can’t help feel it’s another revolution i ... Read review

Review of Will online shopping kill off our high street? by ravingreviewer

Advantages: Jobs.
Disadvantages: Jobs.

In my own and yet very humble and opinion, online shopping HAS made a very sizeable dent on shopping on the high street with a whole host of shops big or small not being able to keep going financially in this day and age. But with this said and in mind ho ... Read review

Disadvantages: Short reviews can lack personality. Long can become irrelevant & ramble

On my blog shorter reviews seem to get more feedback, but over here it's tough to get Es if you don't approach 1000 words. I'm not sure Amazon reviews are better than what is written here. I am left none the wiser by many Amazon reviews and some are factually incorrect. by Dentolux
