According to data supplied to Drapers from Springboard, footfall rose 0.9% across the UK last week compared with the same period last year, with the high street and retail parks increasing by 1.4% and 1.9% respectively.
Shopping centre footfall declined 0.9%.
In all three categories, footfall dropped below the previous week’s levels. Overall footfall was down 2.8% week on week, with the high street down 1.2%, retail parks 4.1% and shopping centres 5%.
Diane Wehrle, Springboard marketing and insights director, said: “Footfall has risen across the UK this week against the same time last year for both high streets and retail parks.
“However, shopping centres saw a small drop of 0.9%, having had just seven weeks of year-on-year growth so far this year, in comparison to 21 out of the 25 weeks for retail parks, showing the recent dominance of this sector in attracting footfall through its convenience and big-ticket item offering.”
