Experian Footfall data for Week 31, 2010

August 2, 2010 to August 8, 2010

  • The national index recorded a week-on-week decline of 3.3%, customary for this period following the first two weeks of the summer holidays for most of the country. Although showing a week-on-week decline, the performance compared with the same week last year was strong. This pattern is shown across most regions of the UK given that last year’s figures were likely to have been suppressed as swine flu infections peaked during this period in 2009,with widespread advice to avoid busy locations to prevent the spread of the illness.

  • Retail parks experienced a small increase in footfall with a year-on-year lift of 0.3%. An increase of 4.5% was noted week-on-week, consistent with last year.
