The emergence of the new coronavirus Omicron variant is starting to impact shopper behaviour, researcher Springboard said on Monday.

It said that in the week to Dec. 4 whilst shopper numbers in central London rose by 0.5% versus the previous week, its Central London “Back to the Office Benchmark” fell 2% and there was a 3.8% drop in footfall in regional cities outside of the capital.

Springboard said footfall in UK retail destinations as a whole rose by 0.7% in the week versus the previous week.
