UK shopper numbers boosted by state-funded dining scheme

Tue, 1st Sep 2020 10:41

LONDON, Sept 1 (Reuters) - Shopper numbers across all
British retail destinations rose 6% in the week to Aug. 29
versus the week before, helped by the final full week of the
government's "Eat Out to Help Out" subsidy scheme, researcher
Springboard said on Tuesday.

It said all three destination types benefited from a rise in
footfall, with shopping centres seeing an increase of 9.1%, high
streets up 4.8% and retail parks up 5%.

Springboard said the rise led to an annual decline of 26.1%
- an improvement on the year-on-year drop of 30.7% in the week
before.
