Footfall and sales information available for CQ businesses

Partnerships for Better Business (pfbb uk), contract managers for the Cathedral Quarter, will be revamping its weekly sales and footfall monitor scheme in the coming weeks, ensuring businesses receive the latest news and information relevant to them.

In return for submitting a weekly percentage sales figure, businesses receive an invaluable report containing the latest information on weekly footfall, local and national footfall and sales trends, and sales in the city by business sector. Figures remain confidential and will never be quoted as part of the report.
