UK high street retail Sept footfalls down 0.9%: BRC
Oct '16
In its latest report covering the period August 28 to October 1, 2016, the British Retail Consortium (BRC) said footfall in UK high street retail in September was down 0.9 per cent from a year ago period, a return to the decline in footfall seen before the 0.1 per cent rise in August. However, on a three-month basis, footfall declined 0.4 per cent.

“This is below the three month average of 0.2 per cent and is the fifth month; high street retail footfall has fallen this year,” BRC observed.

“Total footfall was fractionally down this month with almost one per cent fewer people heading out to shopping locations across the UK,” Helen Dickinson, chief executive at BRC said. “At the same time as both footfall and shop prices have fallen year on year, retail spending grew in September by 1.3 per cent.”

“This is a function of the changing face of retail and the hard work and innovation of British retail businesses which are responding brilliantly to technological advances and changing consumer habits,” she too observed. (AR)
