Research by Awin.com, an affiliate marketing network, revealed this week that 39% of UK shoppers wouldn’t really care if all high street shops were to close. In short, shoppers are rapidly losing love for the high street – or at least for the old way of doing things
Almost half of UK shoppers say that the lack of availability of products on the high street is the biggest frustration of shopping in-store – compounded by being sent special offers or a voucher from a store only to find that the product was out of stock when they got there.

A third of UK consumers are tempted by the idea of fitting smart shelves that can automatically re-order items as soon as they run out, 37% are attracted by the concept of a smart fridge that suggests recipes based on what food is in there and 34% want kitchen appliances that can connect and be remotely controlled by voice.
