Those where the days .....

Beautiful boutiques, cafe's bars and restaurants. Bustling Farmers' markets, sometimes cobbled streets - to state of the art 'covered' town center shopping malls.

Let's not forget the lined streets of quirky independent shops.

Then came ....

The proliferation of retail parks where destination retail has become a proper shopping experience! Well that's what the brochure said.

You know the type - giving businesses a winning professional image, in a desirable photo rich setting for customers to shop. Everyone is smiling - even those with their young families!

Oh, and FREE parking.

Darn those marketing people. The car park was packed!

Hang on, I thought retail had metamorphosed into online these days?

You know, never leave the comfort of your own home. Free up time. More choice. No car journeys filled with stress finding that 'near the shops' car parking space.

And yet, according to research from Rackspace over a third (34 per cent) of the 2,000 consumers surveyed said they will give up browsing a website after 10 minutes if they can’t find what they want and a further 26 per cent will give up after 15 minutes.

That seems a long time to me.

Or is it a mix of all those that entices us to buy?

Does the future of the high street (and retail parks) lie in 'connected retail'? Is there a retail renaissance underway because of digital?

The speed with which new technologies have been adopted by consumers is breathtaking. The use of tablets and mobile is unprecedented.

New customer touch points, such as social media, have burst onto the scene, leaving retailers struggling to decide whether to prioritise social commerce, digitally enable stores or focus on mobile strategy.

Understanding when to harness these technologies and how to communicate is what connected retail is all about. So we're being told.

What's the answers?

This week we speak with four experts in retail to find out the challenges, the successes, and how they see the future unfolding.

At 10:10 am.  Naomi Perkins - Founder of Naomi’s Café Bar. Telemarketing & PR Expert.

At 10:40 am. Deborah Millington  - RedBorder Ltd Director and Retail Marketing and Sales specialist.

At 11:05 am. Dawn Statham-Lowe - Director +Attavanti.  A Worcester company which has office’s in St Mary’s Street has shown the success of its brand by being awarded the #SBS business award on Twitter by Dragons’ Den entrepreneur Theo Pathitis.

At 11:30 am. Nicholas Wylde - Owner, Nicholas Wylde Ltd. He realised his dream of starting his own business in 1987, opening his first shop in Bath at the age of 24. Now has a shop in Bristol too. Also launching his bespoke diamond collection with a pop up shop at London’s exclusive department store Fenwick.

Asking the questions is regular guest show presenter, That Ex BBC journalist, PR man, and now town centre guy, +Iain Nicholson

Knowing Your Business Radio Show host, and marketing man, is +Ian Gentles.

Show time starts at 10 am 14th May on Radio Horton.
