Walking between Marylebone and Baker Street stations are two blocks of small shops.
Out of ten shops on one of the blocks, three have recently closed.
It may well be a particularly greedy landlord. In a way, I hope that is the case. Otherwise a 30% closure rate in the space of a month would seem to confirm that the retail sector is currently suffering a nightmare.
Unless that is you are one of the large supermarket chains.
Obviously, we want to live in a world where we are forced to shop at one of the large supermarkets. Naturally, life would be better without local independent shops and speciality retailers.
