Three chain stores on Queen Street will shut for good over the next few months.

Retail NZ’s Greg Harford says the effects are being felt not only across heartland New Zealand, but in the major centres too.

He says retail is a constantly evolving industry and some businesses need to make changes to keep up.

Greg Harford says some retailers are adapting by clustering together to create a shopping destination.
