As one of our ongoing Business Support projects, we closely monitor data produced by Springboard using footfall counters located above Mountain Warehouse on Broadmead East and on Pret on the corner of Broadmead West and Union Street.
A weekly report is sent out by email each Monday morning, please email email@example.com if you would like to receive it, with weekly and monthly reports added to the Footfall page on this website as soon as we receive them.
The reports allow us to see the footfall per hour and to compare the figures to any previous period, most commonly week on week and year on year. We can add events (including promotional campaigns, weather, and lockdowns) to a calendar, making it easier to see how they affect footfall. During 2021, we were also able to compare footfall against 2019 (pre-pandemic), which gave a truer picture of recovery.
We can also see how Broadmead is performing compared to high streets in the region and across the UK.
Springboard’s annual review of 2021 will be published in January 2022 and will look back at the performance of retail throughout the year, encompassing key trends in footfall, store sales, store capture rates, consumer confidence and online shopping over the year from January to December. We will post the link here as soon as it’s available.
