Poor UK Retail Footfall 'Likely To Persist During Summer', Says Analyst
A leading retail analyst has said that the poor UK footfall numbers recorded in May are likely to persist at least until the end of the summer.
Clive Black of Shore Capital was commenting following the publication of the latest BRC-Springboard Footfall and Vacancies Monitor, which showed that UK retail footfall declined by 3.5% in May – a sharp decline on the same month in the previous year (0.4%).
This was the worst monthly footfall figure in six years, the British Retail Consortium reported, with declines in every region and across all channels: high streets, retail parks, and shopping centres.
