More Than a Shop episode 7: The future of the UK’s high streets

Content by More than a Shop

This More Than a Shop podcast explores the changing landscape of UK high streets.


Elizabeth Alker is joined by industry experts – Central England Co-operative’s Chief Executive Debbie Robinson and the IGD’s Head of Shopper Insight Rhian Thomas – who talk passionately about how the high street is still relevant. We also hear how Headingley Development Trust has inspired community ownership as a way of taking control of the local high street, creating jobs and securing its future. 

Please note: The More Than a Shop series was recorded before the outbreak of the Coronavirus pandemic.
