The total footfall is now tracking at 82 percent compared to 2019.

“We see a strong trend towards consumers returning to our centres. While the footfall numbers are returning to normal levels, consumers are clearly spending more when they go to our shopping centres and the average sales for April 2020 were 37 percent higher than the same period in 2019. While this is positive news, our focus continues to be ensuring safety and the security for customers, tenants and employees. We have implemented upgraded covid-19 safety measures,” says F. Scott Ball, CEO at Citycon.
