Springfields delighted at customer numbers

Those who run Springfields say they’ve had a brilliant few weeks post lockdown and trading is even up compared to this time last year.

Spalding Leisure Retail say last week’s trading was better than at the same time last year.

A spokesman said: “When comparing last week’s trading (week 30) with the same period in 2019, sales were up 2 per cent from the 96 per cent of stores reopened.

“Of those 56 per cent of like-for-like stores traded positively and 80% of those reported double digit percentage increases.

“Footfall and sales have grown strongly every week for the six continuous weeks post-lockdown.

“This is a remarkable achievement for the UK retail sector.”

Ian Sanderson, director at SLR which developed, and asset manages the scheme, said: “This is another great milestone at Springfields which was designed to be different some 16 years ago.

“The scheme has attracted visitors back strongly as we’re able to offer an appealing and spacious environment.

“This positive customer response, reflected by outstanding annual growth in the post lockdown environment, shows that shoppers are keen to return and fully enjoy the experience at Springfields Outlet and Leisure.”
