Footfall to high streets, shopping centres and retail parks declined across the whole of the UK last week, according to the latest Springboard data.
In the week starting 2 November footfall dipped by 2.3% year on year, and was down 11.8% on the week before.
High streets, retail parks and shopping centres saw footfall decline by 3.4%, 0.1% and 2% year on year, respectively.
Springboard’s retail insights director Diane Wehrle said the buoyancy of the half term school holidays the previous week led to an average fall last week of 11.8%.
“Week 45 has been a difficult week for footfall every year for the past four, recording a year-on-year drop across all retail locations since 2011,” she explained.
