Although the index has been showing a steady week-on-week incline in the number of
shoppers for the past five weeks, levels so far are showing that figures are again failing to match those of last year.
There may be a change in shopping patterns later this week as consumers could be affected by the latest weather warnings from the Met Office.
The stormy weather experienced in Scotland and North of England has been predicted to continue later this week affecting the South of England, mainly the Channel coast with winds of up to 70mph.
Experian says consumers may rush to make purchases to beat the weather or for those impacted by financial pressures, may still be waiting further until the final few days before Christmas to bag bargains.
