We're just back from one of our regular visits to the bonny borders town of Berwick upon Tweed, where yet more high street shops have closed since our last trip. A major factor has been the expansion of the trading estate on the outskirts of town, where two major supermarkets have opened, making three in all. In the town centre, Iceland and M and M are both closing next month, and one of the assistants in B and M Bargains told me that they had taken only £35 the day before. What's your local experience, and what do you think, if anything, can be done about it?
