Footfall over the month of July was down compared with June due to changeable weather conditions and an increase in the number of people being told to self-isolate.
Footfall experienced a boost in the second and third weeks of July as remaining restrictions were eased, according to the Springboard Index. Footfall rose by 16.5% on ‘freedom day’ on Monday July 19, compared with the same day a week earlier.
However, this brief lift could not impact the overall drop across the month as a whole, with footfall down 24.2% in July compared with the last comparable period in 2019. Footfall was also down a further 2% from June.
