The number of shoppers on Britain’s high streets rose slightly in July compared with a year ago, according to another survey that suggests consumer demand has held up since Britons voted to leave the European Union.
Retail data company Springboard and the British Retail Consortium said high street footfall rose 0.3 percent compared with July 2015, following a 3.7 percent drop in June.
Overall, the figures contributed to a mixed picture for consumer spending since the June 23 referendum, with consumer confidence plunging but few major retailers reporting any slowdown in sales.
