Experian Footfall data for week 3, 2011

January 17, 2011 to January 23, 2011

  • Footfall dropped 0.6% week on week, a minor fall but more significantly it fell 2.5% year on year. The beginning of 2011 has shown good growth year on year until this week, where comparisons are made against a week last year when heavy snow subsided and shoppers were able to return to the shops. The slight downturn may be in part due to the VAT rise but it may just be the impact of the snow in 2010. On a regional basis the northwest was down 6.5% and Northern Ireland was down 5%, representing the largest drops in footfall.
  • The retail park index increased slightly week on week by 0.4% but also fell 2.7% year on year So far this year the retail park index has mirrored the national index.
