The Butcher, The Baker & Candlestick Maker To Call For
2019 Oct 08th 11:44 AM

When I first saw the news that high street retailers were to call for a tax on online business I did envision old world high street businesses like your local Butcher & Baker down at number 10 with the cleaver and rolling pin going 10 rounds with George & Dave but they have pretty much gone haven`t they? Strangely swallowed up or put out of business by the likes of the big supermarkets whose Lord over all they survey bosses such as Justin King are at the forefront of rattling the George versus the Dragon sabre(though I don`t think his "fellow traders" are eating as profitably as Mr King with his 23% pay rise last week taking his rumeneration to £4.3m).

 

King called for a level playing field or risk seeing the high street shrink even further. I don`t know about your local shops but as I go from run down block to glass fronted shopping centre with dodgy monuments or supposedly inspiring tropical plants. They are full of the same shops that are part of a chain or a franchise. I wonder if they really want to compete with the wide variety of online businesses firing out amazing products from across the world at competive prices or if they really want to continue living this fairy tale they like to present of being the little man in the high street.

Is the UK really ready for any Brexit resolution?
2019 Jul 29th 17:38 PM

UK businesses are crying out for a resolution to the Brexit limbo. But ParcelHero’s Head of Consumer Research, David Jinks MILT, warns they should be careful what they wish for… Its latest study reveals most companies go bust immediately after, rather than during, a downturn.

Retailers and logistics companies have put investment on hold while they await the final Brexit decision. Whether there’s a hard Brexit, a soft Brexit or no Brexit, most businesses say what they most want is some kind of resolution.  ‘But perhaps businesses should be careful what they wish for,’ warns David Jinks MILT, Head of Consumer Research at the e-commerce international delivery expert ParcelHero. ‘It’s when companies have to start spending again that they frequently fail.’

Cautions David: ‘Are UK companies really ready for the next step? Our latest Industry Study , Will Brexit resolution – whatever its shape – bring dividends or disaster? shows recent downturns have seen countless companies surviving market stagnation only to go bust when economic stability returns. No matter what the outcome of Brexit finally is, when it’s resolved businesses will need to take their foot off the brake pedal and back onto the accelerator.’
