Gosh where to start, a level playing field for traditional retailers. Watching Mike Ashley in front of the MP’s yesterday you would have thought he was the one responsible for ruining House of Fraser. Hello, memo to all those clever MP’s trying to ‘roast’ him, he’s saved the business, but remember he is a businessman, not a charity. The fact is traditional retailers simply cannot keep pace with the advantages online has over them. It’s not just the businesses too, behind every shop, store and high street struggling to survive are people, people with families, livelihoods and communities, so somewhere along the line we need a rethink to help them compete and survive. In order for entrepreneurs to do what they do local and most importantly national government needs to stop prevaricating and come up with genuine solutions, otherwise retailing as we knew it will not survive.
