Fuel price hits regional shopper numbers

After the surprise year-on-year growth in retail sales and traffic in May, latest figures from SPSL’s Retail Traffic Index show shopper footfall numbers in decline again.

Fuel price hits regional shopper numbers

The number of consumers going into non-food retail outlets fell by 1.3% in June against May, and by the same 1.3% against June last year.

Retail outlets within regional shopping centres, though, were the worst hit. Shopper numbers there were down 4.9% year-on-year as shoppers reacted to fuel price increases.
