Retail footfall dropped in January across all destinations as the UK went into lockdown for the third time since the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
Footfall declined 65.6% in January, which was the first month in full lockdown, compared with a decline of 41.9% in December.
High streets and shopping centres suffered particularly, where footfall fell 72.6% and 73.6% respectively, according to the latest insights from Springboard.
Footfall in retail parks was marginally better – as has been the trend throughout the lockdown periods due to the presence of essential shops – decreasing by 42.1% for the month.
