Over 126,000 people visited Shop Street over the weekend, a pedestrian counter installed by Galway City Business Association (GCBA) has revealed.
Figures for the weekend show that 126,360 people visited Shop Street from Friday until Sunday, with the busiest time being Saturday at 2pm, when figures peaked at 49,954. The average hourly visits to the street numbered 1,755 on Saturday.
“This information is invaluable. If we have counters in place next year retailers will be able to compare figures year on year,” said GCBA’s Gill Carroll.
“It will also empower the retailers with vital information so they can best plan for 2013 in terms of opening hours, marketing plans, rota planning etc.”
