Retail footfall down 1% in November

New figures have shown that retail footfall in November edged down 1% on the same month last year following a 0.9% drop in October.

The figures from the British Retail Consortium and Springboard in their monthly footfall monitor reveal that high street footfall declined for the third consecutive month with a 0.7% fall.

Footfall in retail park locations edged down 0.1% while shopping centre footfall dropped by 2.3%.

Diane Wehrle, Springboard insights director, said: “November footfall revealed four distinct trends: a continued bounce back of the High Street from last year with footfall moving to -0.7% from -3.4% in November 2015; the ongoing significance of Black Friday for the high street as well as online; a slowdown in the growth of footfall to out of town destinations; and of most concern, a further decline in footfall to shopping centres.”

The BRC said Black Friday did little to impact the overall monthly trend in footfall.

Helen Dickinson, BRC chief executive, added: “Whilst the event clearly attracted shoppers to stores, it was retailers’ online offerings who were the real winner, with shoppers for non-food items spending more than one in four pounds online, setting a new record for online share.”
