Heads up: Top comment and controversy
Poll: As HMV, Blockbuster and Jessops disappear, what will take their place on the high street?
17 January 2013 11:59 AM
The violins are out. Every day seems to bring the fall of another former titan of the high street; Comet, HMV, Jessops, Blockbuster - all have either vanished or are soon to. With their departure grow fears that the passtime of browsing in person, rather than online, will go up in smoke as well - and the outburst of nostalgia prompted by HMV's collapse showed just how many will miss it. Nevertheless, things must move on; so which stores do you think will take advantage of our declining high streets? Have your say on the poll below.
Or will everything just look like this?
