Experian Footfall Data for Week 8, 2010

February 16, 2010 to February 28, 2010

  • The week-on-week fall of 4.8% was an expected drop after last week’s half-term holidays ended across most of the country. The National Index performed positively against last year, giving an increase of 0.5%, an encouraging uplift for retailers as freezing weather conditions will have previously discouraged shoppers.


  • The Department Store Index witnessed an exceptional year-on-year increase of 8.8%. Department stores continue to demonstrate their popularity as a preferred one-stop shopping destination. However, there are fears of a difficult spring as the continuing January Sales, alongside Mother’s Day promotions, highlight that retailers still need to attract cash-strapped consumers in-store
