Sad demise of Grantham’s solo traders

Have your say

MANY Journal readers will regret the demise of another popular, independent Grantham retailer and I suspect most will agree with Chris Pettit about the impersonality of internet trading.

Do we really want even more multi-national banks, building societies, bookmakers and charity shops taking over our vacant high street premises?

And how on earth can staring at a screen and rattling a keyboard be more pleasant and enjoyable than receiving personal service from retailers in a traditional market town?

The internet is a fantastic source of information and an essential tool for millions of modern commercial and industrial users, but considering some of the rubbish encountered on Twitter and Facebook, many social media devotees must be out of their cyber-minds.
