shoppers 13

Footfall rose in September, narrowing the gap with pre-pandemic levels, boosted by staycations, day trips and the return to the office.

Shopper numbers fell 17.4% compared with 2019 figures, up from -18.6% in August, according to the latest data from Springboard.

The numbers were boosted by the August bank holiday weekend which fell within the period, where staycations and day trips were popular across the UK.
