Charity shops are very popular and are vital for the charity they represent.
However, charities do not pay revenue and they have taken up all the much needed smaller shop stores on the local high road. Therefore, would it not be permitted for the London Mayor and his team to simply ask each local authority to try place all the charity stores in their local area under one large shop roof in an organise fashion. This will help free up all the smaller stores the charities currently occupy to revenue paying traders that are searching for smaller stores sites locally in London. This will be mean an increase of revenue to each local authority that could be used to benefit the borough they control. In addition, a more variety of shops on each local high road will help end the amount of time that is used searching online for something that is best simply purchased locally in person.
It is one of the ways the local London high road could be brought back to life.
Currently, in Palmers Green we have are fair share of good charity shops, however, in all my years in Palmers Green, a once very busy and lovely, prosperous shopping parade high road with various independent specialized stores that were always trading has now resulted to the same high road struggles, we currently have two very large empty shops stores that have been vacant for a few years now, and what is it odd is that Palmers Green is an en-route area which has excellent pubic transport, includes a railway station and a decent enough parking spaces.
Currently, nothing is really done to really help revive the shops on our local high road to benefit our society.
