The high street has dramatically changed over the years

The aftermath of the coronavirus pandemic and the rising popularity of online shopping has pushed Britons away from the high street.

It has placed 'closing down' signs outside stores including in Kilmarnock, Scotland, Romford, England and Ammanford, Wales.
