I don't know what the numbers are but I guess the electronics maker market is rather tiny for it to be viable on the highstreet.
I often think that about many shops; those selling beds, furniture and carpets, but also smaller shops which cater for modellers, hobbyists, arts and crafts, the knitting and sewing factions. I suppose it depends on whether one is running a shop as a hobby or a business, whether one wants to just earn a living or more.
To earn a £10K salary one has to make around £200 profit per week, then there's renting a shop front, insurance and bills.
I am convinced many "TV repair" shops and similar are more 'rented garden sheds' for the owner to escape to for peace and quiet than viable businesses.
