Online Grocery Spending Dips Slightly as Consumers Adjust

Online shopping is retaining most of the share COVID gains it made last year as changes in consumer preferences and the Delta COVID variant, are shifting preferences, the Brick Meets Click/Mercatus survey indicates.

The monthly benchmark survey from Brick Meets Click and Mercatus indicates that pickup remains the preferred method of shopping and that consumer intention trends favor mass retailers.

Consumers shopped less frequently and spent less per order online than they did a year ago as pantry loading slows and multioutlet shopping returns, the latest Brick Meets Click/Mercatus survey indicates.

U.S. consumer spending is roaring back to life and will soon resemble—in most ways, anyway—the pre-pandemic mix, says Jerry Sheldon of IHL Group.
