UK Retail Footfall Declines To Six-Year Low In May: Study
Retail footfall in the UK in the four weeks to 25 May has declined by 3.5% year-on-year, the lowest in six years, according to BRC-Springboard footfall and vacancies monitor.
The footfall declined by 0.7% on a three-month basis, while the average footfall decline for the six and 12-month period was 1.3% and 1.4% respectively.
Marketing and insights director at Springboard, Diane Wehrle, commented, “The -3.5% drop in footfall in UK bricks and mortar destinations in May is a poor result and is consistent with the drop in sales for the month."
