Data: Springboard footfall

Springboard has tracked and forecast footfall to retail locations across the UK since 2002, recording and analysing more than 70 million footfall counts per week at almost 500 shopping destinations across the UK. Its data splits out regional trends, and also separates different types of retail locations, painting a picture of how high streets are performing against shopping centres and retail parks. Footfall was decimated during the covid-19 crisis as consumers were forced to stay at home during national lockdowns. Springboard’s data will highlight which locations are bouncing back most robustly and sustainably from the pandemic.
