Experian Footfall data for Week 11, 2010

March 15, 2010 to March 21, 2010

  • Week 11 shows a week-on-week decline in the national index, a customary fall after a week of Mother’s Day shopping, which was an encouraging boost to retailers. Although there was a drop of 3.9% compared with the same week last year, this was expected as it was in comparison with the week of Mother’s Day shopping last year. With the school holidays still to start and Easter ahead, further improvements can be expected going into April.

  • Despite the decline on the high street this week, the improved weather did have a positive impact on the Retail Park Index, showing a weekly uplift of 6% and a year-on-year jump of 6.5%, as consumers began to focus on home DIY projects.
