  • Visit the Virtual High Street

  • Like this articleTweet this articleShare this article+1 this article  


    We’ve all heard that the death of the high street is inevitable – but is it really all doom and gloom? Or are we actually more loyal to our much-loved local stores than some would have you think?

    Our research1 shows that over 60% of Britain’s shoppers have long-standing relationships with their local shops, with the average relationship lasting 10 years. So why do people love local so much? And which retailers get the lion’s share of loyalty?

    Take a stroll down AXA’s interactive high street to find out. And to become the most loyal local, make sure you visit all the shops on the high street and collect loyalty points as you go.

  • Protect your shop – and your high street

    Whether your shop is on the high street or online, it’s vital that you have the right protection in place. That way, if your shop is flooded or you face a claim after a customer slips in your shop, you can stay open for business. That’s not just good for you – it’s good for your community too.

    At AXA, we provide cover for a wide range of retail businesses, from grocers and florists, to hairdressers and butchers. And because we know one size doesn’t fit all when it comes to retailers, we give you the freedom to tailor your cover to meet your needs. That way, you get the cover that’s right for your shop – not someone else’s.
