Craft Business  |  Aug-18  


Doom and gloom is always in the news when it comes to our High Streets, with stores and big names folding and closing.

However, Bill Grimsey, former head of Wickes, Iceland and Focus DIY, has launched his second report into the future of town centres and High Streets and has some interesting ideas about reviving it.

Speaking to the BBC he said: “Forget retail for town centres, they need to become community hubs based on health, education, entertainment, leisure and arts and crafts.”

Also Helen Dickinson OBE, Chief Executive of the British Retail Consortium, has called for a two-year freeze on business rates.

She said: The retail industry, the UK’s largest private sector employer, makes up five per cent of the economy and pays nearly 25 per cent of the overall business rates bill, over £7 billion per year. This is a disproportionate burden and is leading to decisions to close stores, while at the same time getting in the way of the modernisation and reinvention of Britain’s high streets.

“The current business rates system is not fit for purpose. It is a 20th century answer to a 21st century problem. Retail shoulders far more than its fair share, and the rates bill is leading to store closures and getting in the way of reinvention of our high streets. We're calling on government to freeze business rates until the 2021 revaluation to relieve the burden of this unfair tax on retail businesses and allow time for dialogue about the wholesale modernisation of business taxation.”

Hopefully some of these ideas will help out the High Street.

Enjoy this month's issue of Craft Business.
Craft Business is more than just a B2B magazine; it is an industry institution that for more than 12 years has uncovered the latest trade launches and sales trends, while offering business advice aimed directly at the specialist craft and hobby retailer.

Published eight times a year and supported by our popular online resource, CraftBusiness.com – the magazine covers all markets relevant to its readership including papercraft; stitching and haberdashery; jewellery and beading; knitting; general arts and crafts; and media, digital and online information. In-depth features exploring profit opportunities across the industry are complemented by advice from retail experts, comments from market leaders, and fresh perspectives from retailers themselves. Drawing on the experiences of these diverse voices, Craft Business reflects the challenges facing today's craft retailers and offers inspiration, innovation and support for their growth.

In addition to the magazine, back in 2012 Craft Business was able to take advantage of its position in the market and launched the only annual directory for the Craft & Hobby industry, comprehensively listing companies in the industry in one easy-to-use guide, available in both print and online.
