Experian Footfall data for week 52, 2010

December 27, 2010 to January 2, 2011

  • Footfall dropped by 5.9% week on week for the last week of the year, which was in line with expectations. This was, however, a smaller drop week on week than in previous years, which culminated in the year-on-year footfall increasing 1.5%. This is the first positive year-on-year growth seen since the last week in October.
  • The footfall for retail parks increased by 2% week on week and increased by 0.9% year on year. The index over the past five weeks has increased in the run-up to Christmas, but retail parks haven’t seen the same level of increase. The year-on-year figures remained fairly level to those of the national index but footfall volumes don’t spike as much over the Christmas period as they do in shopping centres.
