Festive footfall fluctuates

Footfall over the festive period fluctuated with last minute shoppers hitting the streets on the Monday before Christmas, yet bad weather deterring many on Christmas Eve.

According to the Experian Footfall National Index, footfall rose 18.1% year-on-year on Monday December 23 compared to the comparable Monday in 2012, which was Christmas Eve.

Yet comparing Christmas Eve this year with Christmas Eve last year the number of people on the high street dropped 7.9%. It is thought the adverse weather conditions of high winds across the country could have affected footfall numbers.

However shoppers were back in force on Boxing Day as discounts helped to pull in a rise in shoppers with footfall growing by 1.4% compared to last year.
