UK retail footfall edged modestly lower in July, slipping below the 3-month average, with extreme weather and England's successful Euro2020 football campaign keeping many shoppers away from the shops. Total UK footfall "decreased by 28.0% in July (Yo2Y), with a 0.4 percentage point decrease from June. This is below the 3-month average decline of 27.7%", the latest BRC/Sensormatic survey shows. .
Despite the downturn, "the last week of July offered a glimmer of hope for retailers as the easing of restrictions lead to the best weekly performance of 2021. Retailers hope this trend will continue as the rise of vaccinations and falling coronavirus case numbers boosts consumer confidence," said Helen Dickinson, the CEO of the BRC.
