"Brexit worries and online stores hit shopping centre sales"
"Retailers are facing a tough close to the festive season, amid signs that shoppers have ditched the traditional post-Christmas sales trip due to Brexit worries and the growing popularity of online stores.

"Shopping centres had a particularly disappointing Boxing Day, suffering a 19.9% year-on-year drop in footfall – a measure of shopper numbers. High streets saw footfall decline 2.2% compared with 2015, and for out of town retail parks footfall was down 4.2%, despite earlier optimism, according to retail analysts Springboard.

"That left footfall across UK shops down by 7.3% on Boxing Day, one of the most important dates in the retail calendar. Springboard, which uses electronic sensors to count shopper numbers, predicts that for the rest of this week to 31 December, footfall will be down 2.3% on the same period last year."
