What happens when the hypermarkets close

Are you old enough to remember local high streets filled with independent shops?  A newsagents, a butchers, a grocery shop?
Now, remember when the big shiny multinational superstores came along?  The little high street shops couldn’t compete, and were driven out of business.

NOW, what happens when the multinational superstores have expanded too much, and have to start shutting down?  Where do you shop now? (and what about those jobs?)

That’s the reality in some places now that Tesco are shutting 49 of their stores round the UK.
