Experian Footfall

Experian Footfall data for Week 21, 2010

May 24, 2010 to May 30, 2010

  • The National Index was up by 6.5% week on week as school half-term holidays across the country began and the spring bank holiday approached. Against last year levels were up 2.7%, driven partly by consumers delaying shopping trips until the weekend, following the previous weekend’s soaring temperatures.

  • The Retail Park Index saw a weekly increase in shoppers of 10.1%, and 2.5% year on year. Retail Parks are traditionally a popular destination to shop during the spring bank holiday and this year proved no exception. Saturday’s cooler, damp weather may have further boosted footfall to these destinations as levels were up on the same Saturday last year.
