The 19th century saw the town develop more and more as a shopping centre. Whole streets such as Market Street, High Street and Bridge Street become shopping streets. Throughout the 20th century this has remained the case. Some of the older businesses still trading today include the town's largest private employer, Greens Motors, J&G Bland Motors, Bisely H. Munt in the High Street and Ocky White's department store in Bridge Street.
