Shoppers stay indoors over wet weekend

Image copyright Getty Images Fewer people went shopping this Easter weekend as bad weather lowered turnout. Total shop visits were down by 2.4% between Friday and Easter Sunday compared with last year, according to research group Springboard. This was largely due to a sharp fall in High Street visits - although footfall at shopping centres and retail parks was up. It comes amid a shopping slowdown which has seen a host of high street brands announce store closures or go bust. Springboard said High Street footfall fell by 9.6% on Good Friday year-on-year, and by 6.9% on Easter Saturday, as people avoided the wet weather.
