Halloween fails to boost footfall

Retail footfall figures continue to decline across the UK. The latest figures from Springboard show an overall year-on-year drop of 1.1% for the week beginning 28 October. 

In a period that contained Halloween, Bonfire Night weekend, and half term for some parts of the country, footfall on the high street dropped 1.9%.

Only Greater London, with growth of 0.6%, reported an year-on-year footfall increase. 

Shopping centre footfall dropped by 1.5%. Footfall at retail parks showed an annual uplift of 1.3% – the only shopping destination to record growth on last year.
