Retail footfall during the UK’s second lockdown has proved “more resilient” than in March, as shoppers head to stores in the lead up to Christmas.

Between Thursday and Sunday footfall across all shopping destinations increased by an average of 13% compared with the same three days the previous week, just after lockdown began.

According to the latest data from Springboard, shoppers returned to high streets, shopping centres and retail parks by the end of the week, seeing 10%, 14% and 19% rises respectively.
