  • Full report

Sales are up 18.0% above the June 2020 level.

Some key categories (m/m):

  • Food services and drinking places +2.3%
  • Non store retailers (online) +1.2%
  • Clothing and accessories +2.6%
  • Gasoline stations +2.5%
  • Electronics and appliances +3.3%
  • Furniture -3.6%
  • Motor vehicle and parts dealers -2.0%

The ‘food services and drinking places’ is the cleanest category to evaluate the reopening and how much of the pent up savings people will spend. The 2.3% climb follows a 3.7% rise in May and a 5.1% rise in April.

Here’s another way of looking at it. You can see that it’s back on trend. What you would expect though (especially if you’re looking for a reopening boom) is an overshoot for a number of months and a burst of spending.
