At peak of pandemic, restaurants lost nearly $51B/mo of sales to grocery stores. In July the gap has closed to $4B in sales. Restaurants sales for the past two months are higher than two years ago.

Retail sales for all of Q2 2021 grew 28.2% from Q2 2020, e-commerce in Q2 grew 9% during the same period (due to the very high covid driven e-com last year). E-Com was 13.3% of retail sales for Q2.

  • Target – US Comp Store sales up 8.9%, E-Commerce up 10%
  • Home Depot– US Comp Store sales up 3.4%, E-Commerce flat
  • Lowes– US Comp Store sales down 2.2%, E-Commerce up 7%

Stores selling essential goods are comping against a very large 2020 basis in Q2. Most stores saw increased foot traffic driving store growth. Concerns about Covid resurgence and supply chain disruptions loom for Q3 and Q4.
