Geolytix Retail Recovery Index

Why has Luton town centre recovered to 55% of previous activity levels, but Edinburgh city centre only 13%?

Why is Merry Hill shopping centre at 46% recovery, but Westfield Stratford only 22%?

Why have places like Bourton on the Swanage, Ross on Wye and Boroughbridge bounced back to 70%+ levels of activity, whilst places as diverse as Banff and Kingston are less than 20%?
