New eBook! Pandemic Trends and The Future of Local High Streets

Whilst larger city centres and malls function as ‘destinations’ for specific visits and days out, the local high street traditionally offers a more routine level of essential supplies and services. Has the two-year Covid-19 pandemic changed the way people use these local places?

Huq provides unique real-life evidence of the effect of restrictions on communities by measuring how and when people visit places. In this Local High Streets Report we use those detailed mobility data insights to show the impact of the pandemic on local high streets across England.
