Barnstaples Green Lanes shopping centre saw a seven per cent jump in footfall this September.Thats compared to the same month in 2014, with a three per cent increase overall across July, August and September. The boost coincides with the opening of a new TK Maxx shop in August. Centre manager Jan Dayman said: There might well have been a bit of a knock-on effect from that. It might also be down to the nice weather. The car park has been doing well and our footfall has been up, so Im happy with that. I hope that the trend will continue into the Christmas season now. Theres a lot of internet shopping these days which is a challenge, but I think Barnstaple has a lot to offer.
