Footfall edges up as high street shopper numbers rise


Retail footfall registered a modest week-on-week climb in the week ahead of hospitality reopening, although high streets were the only retail destination that registered growth.

Footfall last week registered a 0.5% rise week-on-week, driven entirely by a 3.9% uptick in shopper numbers to high streets, including a 4.2% rise across Central London.

By contrast, on a week-on-week basis footfall to shopping centres and retail parks was down 2.8% and 3.4% respectively.
