Footfall drops over Bank Holiday weekend

Footfall over the week beginning Bank Holiday Monday May 26, fell by 0.8% year-on-year, with the number of shoppers hitting the high street worst affected.

According to data supplied to Drapers from Springboard footfall on the high street dropped 2.4% on 2013 while the number of people visiting shopping centres also fell by 0.4%.

Retail Parks continued to defy the trend up 2.6% year on year, as shoppers made purchases for the home.

Springboard’s retail insights director Diane Wehrle said: “Last week’s footfall encompassing the bank holiday weekend ended –0.8% against the previous year. Retail Parks continued to reign with an overall lift as consumers head for home purchases but it was not enough to counteract the fall for high streets who saw drops of –4.1% and –10.9% on the Sunday and Monday of last week.”
