SHOPPING CENTRES, HIGH STREETS & RETAIL PARKS

UK retail footfall down 7% last week

Footfall across UK retail destinations declined by 7% last week from the previous seven day period despite the sunny weather.

According to figures from retail specialist Springboard, there was a drop of 10.2% in shopping centres and 6.9% in retail parks. However, high streets experienced a more modest decline of 5.5% as they benefited from activity on Easter Sunday.

Diane Wehrle, insights director at Springboard, said: “The overall result for last week was significantly impacted by drops in footfall on both Easter Sunday – when stores were closed – and on Easter Monday, when only retail parks recorded an increase in footfall, most probably driven by shoppers restocking on food and groceries following the Easter weekend.

“Over the rest of the week, despite the continuation of the dry and sunny weather over much of the UK, footfall declined from the week before on every day other than Tuesday – a sharp contrast with the week before last when footfall had increased every day in the lead up to Easter, and also on Good Friday and Easter Saturday.”

Springboard’s figures also show that footfall last week was 12.7% higher than in the same week last year.
