Coronavirus Retail Data: What’s New from Coresight Research
Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Newly added to our Coronavirus Tracker are:

  • Select findings from Coresight Research’s weekly survey of US consumers—in the Tracker, we focus on how the outbreak is impacting what respondents are buying.
  • US states’ reopening dates for businesses, as states begin to ease lockdowns.
  • Major retailers’ announced store reopening plans, updating our temporary store closures data.
  • Furlough announcements by major retail companies.

New in our Coronavirus Insights reports are:

  • Our weekly surveys of US consumers—with select findings available each week to nonsubscribers. We’ve been tracking US shopper behavior and sentiment on the coronavirus outbreak weekly since mid-March, enabling us to trend the changes in how consumers are acting and what they are thinking.
  • Our latest thinking on the potential shape of a US retail recovery in the US, in What Will a Retail Recovery Look Like? We see a five-stage downturn and recovery process, and we model substantial declines in discretionary retail sales even after lockdowns end, impacted by weak store traffic and depressed disposable incomes.
  • Our Retail Playbook, which offers guidance to retailers in Western markets such as the US and Europe. We focus on the themes of react and adapt. React—including by cultivating loyalty, adapting communications and exploring new sales channels. Adapt—including by preparing for changes in the retail landscape and consumer habits, and by adapting to what we call the “mask economy.”
