UK retail footfall down 2.9% in June

New figures have shown that UK retail footfall declined by 2.9% year-on-year in June.

The data from the British Retail Consortium and Springboard reveals that high street footfall dropped by 4.5%. This compares to an increase of 0.1% in June last year.

Shopping centre footfall also fell, declining by 2.4%, but this was not as high as June 2018’s fall of 3.4%.

Meanwhile, retail park footfall edged up 0.1%. This compares to a decrease of 0.4% in the same month a year ago.

Helen Dickinson, BRC chief executive, said: “Poor footfall this June led to a significant fall in the sales figures for the month. High streets were worst hit by the relatively poor June weather, with shopping centres also performing badly, however, retail parks managed to buck the trend. Last year’s World Cup and glorious sunshine set a high bar, which 2019’s slow consumer spending and Brexit uncertainty failed to live up to.”
