When large out of town shopping malls (shopping centres/retail parks in the UK) became popular the impact was greatly felt by small independent retails situated in the town high street. The down turn in the trade caused financial issues, reduced turn over against continually higher pricing required to survive. Added to this was the drain of personnel. The larger centres had high levels of recruitment, this put additional pressure on the small trader who found good, efficient staff being lured away because of wages levels and improved employment stability
