I'm also worried about the death of town centres. Before long all that will be left will be cafes, and they'll go out of business coz no-one has any reason to visit the town centre anymore. Whole communities will die because of the shrinking of the retail sector.

Dark times.

Of course, some of the town planning hasn't helped. I can think of a town near to me where in the past, say, 12-15 years there have been two major new retail re-developments. They are, however, some distance away from each other so for old people it must be a pain to say the least. What has happened as a result is that some of the chain stores have moved from their old premises to the new so to get from one complex to another you walk down a high street with lots of empty shops. At the risk of sounding like some embittered old fart I really don't think this is progress!

I think sounding like an embittered old fart is progress of a sort!
