You will probably wonder how this is related to “place”, but I will write a commentary very soon linking it to consequences for our town centres:

“The online UK groceries market is one of the fastest-growing areas in retail, but only accounts for £5.6bn of a £156.8bn market. However, it is expected to nearly double to £11.1bn within five years.”
