Queen of Shops', Mary Portas has announced her intention to create more vibrant High Streets across the UK.
Mary Portas has always been a champion of independent stores and with her Channel 4 series, Secret Shopper returning to our screens in the Autumn, she will be looking specifically at the growing problem of empty shops and how the rise of 'clone towns' dominated by chain stores can be avoided.
Mary Portas explains, "I am calling on businesses, local authorities and shoppers to contribute their ideas on how we can halt this decline in its tracks and create town centres that we can all be proud of."
