LONDON (Reuters) - Shopper numbers across all British retail destinations rose by 0.4% in the week to Sept. 5 compared to the previous week, as more people returned to workplaces after the August bank holiday, market researcher Springboard said on Monday.
Springboard said footfall rose 2.6% in UK high streets where many workplaces are located but dipped 0.9% and 2.7% in retail parks and shopping centres respectively.
The weekly outcome meant that on a year-on-year basis footfall was down 25% - the best year-on-year change since the start of the lockdown.
