Analysis from S4labour shows that sales are down 64.3% year on year for Tier 2 venues, for December to date. As a result of the restrictions places on hospitality, food is down 55.3% and drink is down a significant 72.5%. Given that Tier 1 is a tiny percentage of the country, these Tier 2 figures are the best case scenario for the majority of the hospitality industry, most of which is now in Tier 3 or 4, and down over 90% year on year.

 

London has fared worse, down 71.1% year on year, while the rest of the country is down 61.9%. These figures in the capital are due to drop even further to full lockdown levels, given the recent announcements regarding further restrictions.

 

Richard Hartley, Chief Product Officer commented: “the everchanging covid restrictions continue to have a damaging effect on the industry as expected, and Christmas this year is now set to look even more uncertain than previously expected.”
