High streets are on the decline following the rise of online purchases from consumers.
Since 2020 online shopping has risen due to an increase in platforms and a decrease in shops available on the high street for shoppers to browse.
Platforms such as Shein and Vinted have become popular services for those wanting to buy new clothing, with Vinted being downloaded 3.08 million times in April 2023.
High street shops, such as Topshop, have closed down, removing a lot of shoppers favourite brands.
