We should all sit up and listen when a voice as authoritative as that of Bill Grimsey, former CEO of Wickes and Iceland predicts the disappearance from our high streets -within five years- of Marks and Spencer clothing stores and Debenhams.
Commercial Property Advisors (CPA ) is particularly concerned by the impact of business rates, not only on retail behemoths but, crucially, on the numerous small traders which depend on them for footfall.
CPA has built up a solid reputation for successfully appealing business rates, offering a free, no win no fee service, from professional surveys to the complexities of on line paperwork.
Like the small to medium-high street retailers, CPA shares a belief that healthy high streets are the bedrock for community wellbeing.
