The 2014 figures for both independents and multiples activity are significant in that they show a slowdown to parity of openings and closures for independents and also an increase in the rate of chain closures in the country’s top 500 town centres.

As such a potential crossroads has been reached whereby if we see the continued closure of the chains and no take up by the independents or indeed worse, more closures than openings, then we are likely to see the vacancy rates in these locations rise after what has been a relatively stable couple of years from the peak in both vacancy rates and closures in 2012.
