Footfall continues to drop

UK footfall dropped 1.3% year-on-year for the week to 16 June, with a decline in shopper numbers across both high street and shopping centres.

According to Springboard Insights, the drop over the year emanated from a decline of 1.9% in high streets and 1.8% in shopping centres, with just a marginal rise of 0.3% in retail parks. During the same week last year, footfall was more than double this, at a rise of 5.5% on 2016.

On the high street the drop was greater than 3% in half of all areas of the UK, and more than 5% in four areas (East, Scotland, the South West and Wales).

The results for shopping centres were not as extreme, with drops of more than 3% in only two areas (East Midlands and the South West).

  • It's too hot. It's too cold. It's too wet. It's too dry.
    Retailers and analysts are becoming the Goldilocks generation. It'll never be just right. Suck it up , and get your offer right , and then get on with it.
