UK retail footfall improved significantly in April as non-essential businesses and the hospitality sector reopened from the middle of the month, the BRC said Friday, with the BRC-Shoppertrak footfall monitor falling by only 40.0% compared to April 2019 (Y-ON-2Y). However, Helen Dickinson OBE, Chief-Executive of BRC noted "it is unlikely we will see a return to pre-pandemic levels of footfall anytime soon, as social distancing measures naturally restrict retailers' capacity."
"With full business rates relief ending in England in June, the ongoing rates review needs to deliver on its objectives to reform the broken rates system and reduce the financial pressures on retailers, otherwise many stores and viable jobs will be under threat," Dickinson added.
