We can go back to the shops next week, here, in Tier Two London. Hopefully some businesses will be saved. This year has been a cruel one for anybody running any shop other than a food shop. The high street was dying anyway and Covid is just an acceleration of a recent trend.
Last year I did all my Christmas shopping online I’m afraid, even before the pandemic. I can’t justify it, but is there any point in bucking the trend? This year much of the UK will shop online, swelling the coffers of Amazon, and I’m one of them. What do I do if I want to buy something? I look on Amazon, Etsy, eBay, Facebook marketplace or google shopping.
