The latest Black Friday data shows that while footfall fell on high streets for the first time ever, overall card transactions exceeded pre-pandemic totals.
Footfall across all retail destinations on Black Friday grew 2% week on week, but the growth was driven entirely by shopping centres and retail parks, with high street footfall falling 1.5% - the first Black Friday on record where this happened.
Footfall on the day increased by 4.9% on retail parks, and 6.5% in shopping centres.
