Leisure businesses replacing traditional high street shops

Health clubs, vape shops and jewellers are fast replacing banks and clothing stores on the UK high street.

According to research by the Local Data Company, leisure outlets are surpassing the traditional stores as retailers struggle under the strain of rising costs and a reduction in consumer spending, leaving them focussing more on online sales.

The research also found that whilst 4,534 stores opened on the UK high streets in 2016, a total of 5,430 closed, resulting in a net loss of 896.
