Easter footfall shows recovery

Non-food retail footfall saw a huge improvement over the Easter weekend.

Footfall was just 5.4% lower than in 2019, and compares with a drop of 18.6% in the previous week.

Retail parks were the star performer, with footfall 3% higher than 2019, according to Ipsos’ Retail Traffic Index.

Shopping centres saw a 6.1% decline while high streets experienced a drop of 12.8%.

‘Small holiday towns were most successful as many headed to the coast to enjoy the warm weather. However, although these destinations recovered well compared to the week before, they are still well below the numbers recorded in Easter of 2019 leading to large year-on-year losses,’ says Ipsos.
