Mall Foot Traffic - Jockey, Jos A. Bank, Land's End & Lane Bryant

Whether they are found in the open air or in the midst of a busy shopping center, malls mean consumers. Perhaps not year over year so as compared to 2019 but there are signs of returning to pre pandemic levels of foot traffic.

We asked our data science team to look at mall foot traffic between August 2020 and July 2022 across four popular brands commonly located in indoor malls, outlet malls, lifestyle centers, or some other kind of shopping center: Jockey, Jos A. Bank, Land's End & Lane Bryant.

The selected timeline is reflective of several developing influences on mall foot traffic, including the Covid-19 pandemic, supply chain woes, and significant fluctuations in real estate, gas prices, and costs at the grocery store.

This was an interesting exercise that revealed a lot about the people who are loyal to these brands, and the extent to which that loyalty is being tested in 2022.
