It has been a terrible time on the High Street for some stores over the past twelve months.

Habitat, La Senza, Oddbins and Jane Norman are but a few of the big brand names to go into administration joining the ghosts of High Streets past like Dolcis, Our Price and Rumbelows, Richard Shops, C&A and Radio Rentals.
