The Newtown was the same when I was young. Station Road and Tennant Street and even up the High Road were bustling with well-used shops. Now people have cars and need somewhere to park to do their shopping, so supermarkets and out of town shopping centres have replaced the High Streets in towns all over the country. Even so, lots of shopping is now done online, so shops may vanish altogether before long.
