Company insolvencies: over 8,700 chain stores have closed

Recent research shows that in 2021, over 8,700 chain stores have closed due to the major shift in online shopping – partly caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Overall numbers fell by 5,251 as the number of chain store closures outweighed the number of new store openings.

Out of all chains, fashion-based stores were affected the worst.

Coronavirus, however, is not the only factor to blame for these closures as many stores were already falling short before the pandemic, as they could not keep up with the demands of online shopping.

With stores closing at a rapid rate, tens of thousands of workers roles went with them too.
