The industry movement to support every local high street business.
SaveTheHighStreet.org is powered by independent shopkeepers on a Retailer Advisory Board, industry partners across public and private sector and local high street champions nationwide.
High Street Manifesto 2018
The High Street Manifesto 2018 is a declaration of our intent to ensure high street success, now and for the long term. It has been co-created by partners across SaveTheHighStreet.org, it communicates our vision of the future high street and it explains how we can achieve it together.
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 more 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.”
The Retailer Advisory Board
The Retail Advisory Board formed to identify and evaluate opportunities, recommendations and challenges facing independent local businesses today.
It’s free to join and there are various benefits, including: early insight into our local campaigns, PR opportunities and findings from our research.

“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.”
“…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”
