Retail footfall up as workers return to the office

According to retail intelligence experts Springboard, footfall across UK retail destinations rose by +2.7% last week from the week before.

The greatest rise occurred in high streets that saw an increase of +3.7%, and shopping centres that saw an increase of +2.3%, whilst footfall increased by +0.9% in retail parks.

Diane Wehrle, insights director at Springboard commented: “Footfall in UK retail destinations last week rose last week from the week before, which is the first rise in the past four weeks and a particularly positive result as footfall declined in the same week in both 2019 and 2020.

“The greater rise in footfall in high streets meant that the gap from the 2019 level narrowed significantly, and is now a third less than in shopping centres.”
