Experian Footfall data for week 48, 2010

November 29, 2010 to December 5, 2010

  • Footfall has dropped significantly this week to -7.6% year on year, with Tuesday seeing the largest drop. The snow – which initially started on Thursday of the previous week – became more prevalent on Monday, moving into the Midlands and became heavier on Tuesday and Wednesday, when most of the country was affected. On a regional basis it’s clear to see the correlation of heavy snowfall against footfall levels.
  • The footfall for retail parks dropped by 8.7% year on year, so the snow had a greater impact on them than on shopping centres. Footfall started to recover over the weekend, from the lower levels seen as a result of adverse weather.
