Shopper Traffic Cooled Down Last Week Despite The Warm Weather

The latest National retail traffic report from Experian FootFall shows a 8.3% week on week decrease in shopper numbers and a decrease of 8.6% year on year.

The daily figures reflect the fact that last year was the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Celebrations and extended holiday. Monday and Tuesday show a year on year uplift of 6.4% and 3.2% respectively, last year both days performed poorly as most consumers focused on the celebrations and not on shopping.  The rest of the week shows a sharp decline year on year. Last year saw a huge increase as many people took the opportunity to shop during an extended break after the two day bank holiday.

Regionally only the North East regions showed an increase both week on week and year on year, all others showed a decline.   This continued positive performance for the region could be a real indicator of consumer confidence. It will be worth keeping an eye on this in future.

Unusually the Retail Park Index showed a decline year on year of 3.8% and a decline of 7.4% week on week.
