Retailers counter football woes with improved performance

Shopping is most definitely back on the agenda for the UK’s consumers as England’s sporting defeat lead shoppers back to the high street, according to figures released from Experian Footfall.

Despite another weekend of great weather, shoppers took to the high street with footfall statistics showing a healthy increase. Anita Manan, a spokesperson from Footfall says “Despite England getting knocked out of the World Cup and expectation that devoted football fans would continue to follow the World Cup, retailers managed to enjoy a healthy boost to their footfall this weekend.  Although there was a small dip of 0.65% for the overall weekend’s performance compared to last year, which is expected during the summer months with the good weather, Sunday was particularly busy especially when compared to last Sunday.

“The other reason for retailers to be cheerful is Wednesday’s figures, which showed an increase of 3.1% year-on-year, representing a healthy mid-week performance, potentially aided by the fact that there was no World Cup game at all.”

Retail Footfall Index (UK):
Year-on-year
Saturday 3rd July 2010 v Saturday 4th July 2009:-2.56%
Sunday 4th July 2010 v Sunday 5th July 2009:+3.81%

Week-on-week
Saturday 3rd July 2010 v Saturday 26th June 2010: +3.66%
Sunday 4th July 2010 v Sunday 27th June 2010: +27.18%
