Operators in the UK to enjoy increased spending this May Bank Holiday

PierSeaside resorts in the UK can look forward to a boost in spending this Bank Holiday weekend, according to a report by Worldpay.

Analysis of spending patterns around the Bank Holiday suggest that cafes, pubs, restaurants and local tourist attractions could benefit most, with Tenby (393%), Skegness (159%), and Newquay (158%) seeing the greatest increases.

Monday profits are expected to double at the very least, with areas away from the coast also set to be 140% busier than usual.

Making the most of the increase in spending could lead to a good weekend’s trading. Operators should make sure to advertise their food and drink offerings on menus, external A-boards, and across social media ahead of the weekend.
