Day Two of retail’s re-opening and footfall levels dip, but remain strong
The latest update from Ipsos shows that non-food store footfall in England and Wales dipped on Tuesday 13th April after the initial re-opening surge on Monday 12th April (when shopper numbers were down by just -14.2% on the corresponding day in 2019).
Footfall on Tuesday was -25.4% down against Tuesday 16th April 2019. Compared to Monday, yesterday’s numbers were -6.8% lower.
Stores in the East and West Midlands delivered the strongest bounce back (down -17.5% and -13.1% respectively on the corresponding Tuesday in 2019).
“It comes as no surprise that store footfall dropped off a bit yesterday, but levels remain still well above those following last year’s re-openings. The advanced state of the vaccination rollout may well be a telling factor behind the stronger bounce back this year,” commented Dr Tim Denison head of analytics and insights for the retail sector at Ipsos.
