Footfall surges at Retail Parks and casual trading rises…
The latest figures from Springboard shows that annual footfall has increased 4.5% at retail parks, with uplifts in every region and nationally, led by the East which increased by 12.2%.
Retail parks take the lead; meanwhile shopping centres saw an annual increase of 0.9% and high street footfall is up 0.1% against the previous year.
According to the high street sales tracker (week ending June 18, 2017), non-store like-for-like sales were up by 14.47% this week. Non-store, also known as casual trading is the concept of selling goods and services to consumers outside of brick-and-mortar locations, i.e. in the mall of a shopping centre. Clients can lease spaces internally for a kiosk or RMU and externally for catering vans or modular units.
