Visitors to Spanish shopping centres increased by 2.6% in July
Visitors to Spanish shopping centres increased by 2.6% in July 2021 compared to June of the same year.
The influx of visitors to Spanish shopping centres increased by 2.6% in July compared to the previous month, driven by the rise in vaccinations, sales and the good weather.
This is compared to July 2020, the month in which numerous restrictions due to the pandemic were still in force, where there was a growth of 4.7% and the accumulated annual figure stood at 18.3%.
However, the figures show a different result when compared to 2019: the fall in July 2021 was 24.1% compared to the same month two years ago, while the accumulated annual decrease by 30.2% compared to January- July of that year.
However, the monthly Consumer Confidence Index of the Sociological Research Center (CIS) fell slightly in July (91.9 points) due to the worst assessment of the current situation and expectations. This is the first setback since January 2021, which coincides with the fifth wave of the pandemic.
According to the analysis, the greater mobility throughout the national territory due to holidays and the arrival of tourists allows us to predict a good summer campaign for retailers.
However, some communities have once again applied restrictions due to the increase in infections, some even requiring a complete vaccination certificate or proof of a negative test, which can affect the influx of visitors to hospitality and leisure establishments.
This measure was applied for by the Junta de Andalucia but was denied by the Supreme Court.
The Superior Court of Justice of Andalucia (TSJA), based in Granada, denied the request made on August 5 by the Junta de Andalucia to make the Covid passports mandatory for entrance into nightlife venues in Andalucia, claiming that applying such a measure would affect the fundamental rights and personal privacy of individuals.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
