Week 11 2023 – w/c 12th March 2023
Despite the strikes last week, footfall across UK retail destinations rose from the week before. However, in large part this was due to a poor comparable in the week before last when severe weather hit the UK and severely reduced consumer activity.
Footfall rose across all three key destination types, with high street footfall bouncing back to a neutral position against the week before last, while both shopping centres and retail parks ended the week in a stronger position. Footfall rose across all types of high street, although not surprisingly given the restrictions on travel, the uplift from the week before was greater in local high streets than in city centres.
Footfall rose every day last week, with the largest increases on the three days between Wednesday and Friday, when the greatest drops occurred in the week before last.
The degree of recovery in footfall last week was sufficient to bring it to a positive position relative to last year, and the gap from the pre-pandemic footfall level narrowed by a quarter.
