British retail traffic lower in April

The British Retail Consortium monthly measure of shopping activity released today found average footfall across the UK in April was 0.8% lower than a year ago, down from a 0.2% rise in March. Both town centre and shopping centre foot traffic measurements were down, with footfall at malls in April down 3% compared to the same month in 2014. However, Greater London showed the greatest improvement, reporting positive footfall growth for the first time since March 2014, up 1.1% year-on-year, as wage and job growth in the capital flow through in to town centres and malls. The figure is 1.6 percentage points above the three-month average for the region.
