Highlights from our January 2020 Retail Traffic report:

January 2020 saw US retail traffic continue its losing streak, declining (albeit more slowly) for the third straight month. However, the rate of decline is slowing: Not good news, just less-bad news. And, shopper yield has also been on the rise: So while fewer people make the trek to a physical store, they spend more when they do.

This report shows:

  • All regions posted traffic declines in January, although the South experienced the largest drop while the Midwest reported the slowest.
  • The Northeast and West reported modest sales increase.
  • Weather in these locations likely influenced shopper inclination to venture out.
