Footfall drops throughout the UK

Footfall declined year-on-year across all retail categories last week, although there was an “encouraging” weekly uptick, according to data exclusively shared with Drapers by Springboard.

Shopping centres fared the worst in the week beginning April 28, with declines of 2.5%, while high streets also dropped 2.2%. Retail parks were the best performers, but even this category saw a fall of 0.3%, leaving the Springboard Index down 1.9% overall.

However on a weekly basis, retail parks were the worst performer - down 2.8% - with all other categories up. High streets were the best performing category, up 9.6%.

Springboard retail insights director Diane Wehrle said the weekly data demonstrated that “the mild weather is delivering encouraging figures”, noting that “shoppers are filling their spring wardrobes.”
