Footfall index: Step in the right direction in July

Retail footfall index

UK footfall took another step in the right direction in July; while remaining in decline for the month, the rate of 1.9% was shallower than that seen in June.

However, the fourth consecutive month of declining footfall across the UK is certainly not good news for retailers, which were hoping for a better result considering the prevalence of summer discounting in stores. In accordance with the overall figure, all regions were in decline, with the deepest Northern Ireland at -5.0% and the shallowest Greater London at -0.3%.
