Easter weekend boasts well for the retail sector
The UK's retail sector enjoyed a much needed boost over the Easter weekend, with both footfall and card spending seeing a year-on-year rise. London's West End experienced a surge in shoppers over the holiday period, with a footfall increase of 6.8 per cent between Good Friday and Easter Sunday. This compares with a smaller increase in footfall across the whole country between Friday and Sunday.
