Out of Town Shopping

Fascinating article here which taught me some of Nottingham's retail history I didn't know. 

When I was in America, the impact of an almost wholesale move to out of town shopping was one of the things I really disliked - showing people I met photos of Sherwood high street or the pedestrianise city centre almost always elicited wistful sighs of longing...

And you can look closer to home at cities like Sheffield where the impact of Meadowhall has been to turn the city centre into a shadow of its former self.
