We’re Helping Businesses Who Shut Up Shop

It’s hardly a surprise that many businesses have decided to shut up shop. And recent reports suggest that the number is going up by the day with one in seven shops now empty.

The Arcadia Group has arguably been the pandemic’s most notable retail disaster. Shops have shut, staff have lost jobs and their companies are having to reinvent themselves online.

Currys have fared better despite the fact they’ve had to slash costs by reducing the number of stores they have. 

Frankie and Benny’s has also hung on, but they’ve had to shut down more than 100 eateries across the country to survive.

The furlough scheme and the business rates exemption rules were designed to save jobs and companies, but the former will be finished by October.

Experts are wondering how to rescue the high street in the aftermath of shop closures. And landlords will have to figure how to turn rubble to riches again.

That’s where a versatile company like CBS Group comes in.

What can we do to help?

  • Dilapidations and restoring buildings to the required standard of a landlord
  • Store closures
  • Removal of waste, something that can be organised via our sister company CBS Waste
  • Moving stock and fittings across if a business is moving premises which our sister company CBS Removals can help with too.

Our dedicated and hard-working team project manage all jobs from beginning to end. We fully understand the impact store closures have and the true impact having to shut up shop has. And we are there every step of the way.

The future of retail and particularly the high street is up in the air again. But one thing that is certain is that they can call on CBS Group to help.
