Liverpool’s St Johns Centre defied a national slump on the high street in 2018 to show an increase in shoppers and revenue, including an extra £1million worth of pre-Christmas sales in December.

The centre welcomed 13 million shoppers over the year, up more than 400,000 on 2017 and a rise of 2% compared to an average UK decrease in footfall of more than 3%*

While UK retailers struggled to keep pace with online competition, St Johns outperformed the national figures with a 1% increase in sales.

It also received the Retail Team of the Year accolade at this year’s Liverpool Echo Retails Awards.

St Johns general manager Neil Ashcroft said the results for 2018 demonstrated that the centre’s commitment to customer service, alongside its blend of big name brands and independents, was a successful formula.
