Stores optimistic for 2013 after strong post-Christmas sales
STORES at Bridgwater's Angel Place Shopping Centre have been blown away by the number of shoppers visiting during the post-Christmas period.
It has been revealed this week that on December 27, there were 16,000 visitors, nearly double the amount on the same day last year.
In total, there was a 26% increase in football in December 2012, compared to December 2011.
The Friday before Christmas, traditionally the biggest shopping day of the year, was 14% up year on year.
Sales were also up in the two weeks before Christmas.
Angel Place centre manager Roger Smith said: “We had a busy Boxing Day but weren't expecting the volumes of people on the 27th.
“It's fantastic we have had so many shoppers at Angel Place and hope it continues throughout 2013.”
