Problem: Decline of the high street. UK retail stores and shop closes soar. Said to be the result of unfair competition from online sellers. Forty years ago local and chain stores regularly used to advertise their wares cheaply and weekly in local newspapers. Especially their ‘bargains’.

How Government’s response to Thomas Cook collapse emboldens Jeremy Corbyn’s anti-capitalist rhetoric – The Yorkshire Post says

Kate Hardcastle on why retail lessons of the past show way forward for High Street’s future

From: Mr PL Taylor, Milner Street, Lockwood, Huddersfield.

IN response to your editorials about the Thomas Cook shambles (The Yorkshire Post, September 24 and 26), why is it that in the UK important companies are run by incompetent and greedy 
senior executives whose only aim is self-aggrandisement and 
huge payments for doing very little? It is time that the Government appointed a competent Minister to 
scrutinise and properly analyse all the issues that have recently arisen as a matter of extreme urgency.
