A new website has been launched for MyHigh.St, which gives towns a platform to showcase high streets, and independent shopkeepers an affordable and effective chance to present their products online.
It allows shoppers to visit their local high street 24/7. They give shopkeepers internet presence and showcase towns as retail destinations, to encourage more people to visit the shops in person, driving footfall.
Research showed 70% of people are scared of losing the high street and want to see them thrive, despite years of gloom about their demise.
The high street is too important to be allowed to decline and local authorities must act to give their local retailers as much help as possible.The opportunity that technology presents should not be ignored by those who wish to remain leaders of vibrant communities.
