Social distancing Topshop

Footfall more than doubled week on week in the fourth week of trading since lockdown restrictions were lifted, buoyed by the reopening of the hospitality sector.

Retail footfall across all UK shopping destinations rose 10.6% in week four of trading, more than twice the 4.1% increase seen the previous week, according to the latest data from Springboard.

High streets saw a particular surge in footfall, up 16.5% week on week, due to the presence of restaurants, cafes and bars, which reopened their doors to the public from July 4. 

Insights reveal that there was a double-digit rise in high street footfall across the UK on five days of the week, whereas shopping centres saw this on just two out of the seven days.
