Boom Businesses In The UK

Retail is not all doom and gloom

In the UK, the retail market is uncertain. Larger chain shops have been closing branches, but the retail market is not all doom and gloom.

Research by Local Data Company suggests that certain businesses are actually doing better at the moment.

These are –

  • Barbers
  • Beauty saloons
  • Vape outlets
  • Cafes and tea rooms
  • Nail salons
  • Restaurants and bars
  • Coffee shops
  • Pizza takeaways/restaurants
  • Health clubs
  • Mobile phones
  • Bars
  • Chemists/toiletries
  • Funeral directors
  • Tattoos/piercing
  • Chinese takeaways

Why might this have happened?

The Office for National Statistics in the UK says that 17.3% of all retail purchases are now completed online. This is a big fraction of the retail market. 

It is not therefore surprising that the businesses that are increasing in the high street are those that cannot be offered online. We can’t get a hair cut online or our nails done. We may be able to order pizzas or wine over the phone, but many people like going to a bar or restaurant to socialise. So the face to face businesses are those that are increasing in the high street.

How does this help you?

There are two main reasons why this helps you as a person.

  1. If you are looking for a new career or job, then it is useful to target your training and experience in the areas where there are job vacancies. 
    Why not train in Bar Service
    Or take a fitness course.
    Or learn more about catering and food preparation.
    All of these businesses also need managers, supervisors and also marketing people. 
  2. The other reason is that you may be interested in starting a new business yourself and knowing what the market is like out there can really help. Why not consider studying to start your own business or learn more about management or marketing.

If you are still really interested in selling online, we can also help with our e-commerce and internet marketing courses.

If you are planning to start a business or start a new career or even change your career, find out more about the job opportunities and business opportunities out there. Find out about growth businesses, what people are looking for and use that information for your own advantage.
