Last week failed to deliver the spike in footfall many fashion retailers were hoping for, according to data published by Springboard.
Despite the fact that it was payday for many, footfall was down 0.4% year on year across all retail locations in the week beginning September 28.
Retail parks saw the only rise, up 2.5% on the year before. Footfall to high streets and shopping centres fell 1% and 1.6% respectively.
Both retail parks and shopping centres were up on the week before, by 1.9% and 2.2% respectively, but high street footfall was down 2.2%.
Springboard’s marketing and insights director Diane Wehrle said: “The good weather in September has continued to affect both the high street and shopping centres, with the much anticipated pay week failing to deliver the spike for which many fashion retailers have been hoping. “
