High Street has been hit hard in recent years due to the growth of online retail accelerated by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Meanwhile, rapid inflation means shoppers are limiting spending.
It comes as research from the British Retail Consortium shows retailers remain cautious about opening new stores.
It shows that the overall UK store vacancy rate for the first three months of 2023 was 13.8%, the same as the last three months of 2022.
New Look, Argos and Habitat are among several retailers closing stores in July.
