During December 2008 we saw many well known high street businesses go into liquidation like Woolworths, Zavvi, MFI, Adams and Max Spielman. The liquidators only managed to find a buyer for Max Spielman. Woolworths which had dominated nearly ever high street in Britain since it opened its first shop in Liverpool 1909 had failed miserably mainly due to bad management. The other businesses had failed due to the lack of customers spending in the last twelve months up to Christmas.
The future for the British high street in 2009 will be dire as Woolworths had prime sites on the high streets and its demise will leave a vacuum. The loss of these shops will encourage more people to drift towards online shopping. Online shopping has become more popular as the price of computers has dropped in price and they are now more affordable. Who would ever have dreamed that you could sit at home in your pyjamas and shop to your heart content?
Today you can buy a notebook (laptop) from as little as £399. There are comparison online shops that provide you with the cheapest prices available on the internet. They save you the time involved with looking and comparing prices for your products on the high street or the internet. Take for example SmartShopping.co.uk they are a comparison site that offers you the cheapest price for what ever you are looking for from MP3 Players, holidays, travel to groceries. Take for example these three well known brands of computers, Toshiba Notebooks, Sony Notebooks and Dell Notebooks. It could not be easier could it!!
