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 daily report is sent out by email each 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.
We can also see how Broadmead is performing compared to high streets in the region and across the UK.
The Springboard annual review of 2020 looks back at the performance of retail throughout 2020, encompassing key trends in footfall, store sales, store capture rates, consumer confidence and online shopping over the year from January to December.
The repeated shocks to retail throughout the year due to the global Covid19 pandemic, ranging from lockdowns to the reopening of retail to further lockdowns, means that Springboard have reviewed the year both as a whole and using time six periods that are defined by Covid events.
