1280x680 2018 black friday overview

Springboard forecast a drop in footfall of -3.7% and the decline in high streets was virtually in line with this at -4%.  However, more significant falls in footfall in retail parks (-5.3%) and shopping centres (-8.3%) that drove the overall result down further.

The event is clearly an online one, and according to IMRG online spending rose by +7.3% on Black Friday which was lower than their forecast rise of +13.2%.  Barclaycard also reported an increase in transactions, albeit a more modest one at +10%, but said that spending had in fact declined by 12% which dovetails with a drop in footfall.
