Non-essential shops in England and Wales have now re-opened, but not all stores have been able to weather the pandemic, and some will remain closed for good. Cath Kidston, Thorntons and Tophop, for example, have already announced they will not be returning to the UK high street, along with a great number of independent outlets.

With this in mind, we want to hear about your favourite shops which have closed down permanently, and why you will miss them. Perhaps you were a regular visitor to your nearest farm shop before lockdown, and will miss picking up locally sourced produce? Or maybe you were a fan of the fashions on offer at a particular boutique, and were disappointed to find it had shut down permanently. Tell us about the places you have been sad to see close below.
