High street footfall is falling annually by 3.1%
It seems consumers tightened their purse strings at the start of this year. According to the latest figures, January sales failed to stop spending on clothing falling at the fastest pace in nearly five years. Visa's UK Consumer Index says face-to-face spending on the high street recorded an annual fall of 3.1 per cent last month. Nigel Cassidy was joined by Diane Wehrle, Marketing and Insights Director at Springboard to discuss further.

Is the rise of budget supermarkets killing off our high-end supermarkets like Waitrose? Fraser McKevitt of Kantar Worldpanel gives his analysis
Supermarkets, everyone has their favourite. However some new players in the market have definitely shaken things up. We've seen the rise of 'budget' supermarkets such as Aldi and Lidl becoming the new popular way to shop, Aldi recently overtook Co-op to become the UK's fifth largest grocer. So where does this leave the more 'high-end' supermarkets such as Waitrose? It was reported yesterday that Waitrose is planning to close some of it's stores, so could this mean the beginning of the end of the 'middle-class' supermarket? Fraser McKevitt, head of retail and consumer insight at Kantar Worldpanel gave Share Radio his analysis.
