The Connected Digital High Street Manifesto
SaveTheHighStreet.org is a coordinated industry-wide movement to support and empower every local shopkeeper nationwide, accelerating the whole high street’s transition to a better connected, digitally enabled and more sustainable high street.
A better connected digital high street
“We must find ways to merge the strengths of local and digital commerce.”
Thriving for generations to come
“Where local shopkeepers focus on expanding and less on fighting for survival.”
Act now and create a brighter future
“The more of us who join, the stronger we all become. We can all play a role.”
“These are challenging times for independent retailers. It is heartening and promising to see that these conversations are taking place and that groups, organisations and individuals are collaborating to secure a future for independent boutiques both on line and on the high street.”Dan Rigby
“As the owner of Beauty World, our business is based on our customers first, and then the unique stocks we carry. When I started this business with my Uncle I thought “Ok I will give it a try” Afro Beauty, Hair Extensions? I had a lot to learn and once I did I fell in love with this industry.”Mr. Saeed
“…people love walking into a store and having that personal connection and service aspect of shopping, looking at and touching products in a real way. Virtual is good, real is better”Irena Lane
