Footfall down 1.5% in June – BRC Springboard Monitor

UK footfall was 1.5% lower in June than in the same month last year. The decline follows a 1% fall in May.

Figures released by the British Retail Consortium and Springboard in their monthly footfall monitor reveal that shopping centres and high streets saw declines of 2.4% and 2.8% respectively.

Footfall in retail parks fared the best with a 2.8% increase year-on-year, which was an improvement on the 1.4% rise seen in May.

BRC director general, Helen Dickinson, said: “Retail parks have seen another increase in shopper numbers this month – which is good news for the retailers operating in these areas. However, the fundamental shift in the way people are shopping seems to be driving the sustained reduction in shopper numbers to both high streets and shopping centres.

“This is a clear demonstration that the re-invention of the high street is far from complete. The process of creating multi-use destinations in the heart of our towns and cities needs to continue in earnest if people are going to be drawn back to the high street. This has happened in some areas, but the energy and effort behind sharing best practice needs to be redoubled.”

All regions in England saw a drop in footfall as did Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland. The most notable declines were in Northern Ireland and Wales where footfall fell by 3.5% and 3% respectively.
