Footfall declined nationally during the last summer bank holiday week

This last week of the school holidays for many families saw the UK National Retail Index from Experian Footfall increase by 0.3% week on week although we saw a decline of 4.3% year on year.

The bank holiday weekend which followed, caused daily year on year reductions for Friday and Saturday of 5.8% and 7.1% respectively.  Perhaps some of this reflects the continued good weather with many families heading for the coast to enjoy the final days of holiday before returning to the routine of the autumn school term.

There was a disappointing performance across all 11 regions this week, with all showing a decline year on year.

The Experian FootFall Index for Retail Parks showed an unusual week on week decline of 4.7% and a year on year fall of 0.5%. The result is perhaps impacted by recent high profile scrutiny of the pricing strategies of a handful of home retailers.
