SHOPPING CENTRES & RETAIL PARKS

Footfall down last week following disappointing Super Saturday

New figures for the Christmas shopping season show that footfall rose by 7.2% last week from the previous week but dropped by the same percentage when compared to the corresponding week last year.

The figures from retail intelligence experts Springboard reveal that high streets and shopping centres saw respective year-on-year declines of 8% and 7.2%. Meanwhile retail park footfall dropped by 5.5%.

Footfall was down last week in every  part of the UK with each area experiencing a year-on-year drop of more than 5%. In six areas the annual drop was in excess of 8%.

In addition, footfall worsened as the week progressed with an average year-on-year decline of 9.3% between Thursday and Saturday compared to a 5.2% fall between Sunday and Wednesday.

Springboard found that the so-called Super Saturday did not materialise and that there was an annual decline in footfall on the day of 7.6%.
