High street footfall recovers from winter dip

THE high street enjoyed a rebound in business in February, fresh data will reveal this morning. February’s retail footfall was 0.8 per cent above the number for the same month in 2012, the British Retail Consortium said, a recovery over the 4.6 per cent annual crash registered in January. This was particularly noted on the high street, where footfall grew 2.7 per cent.
