Highlights from our July 2020 US Retail Sales Report:

Circumstances are still difficult due to Covid-19, with many states pausing or rolling back reopening plans in the third and fourth weeks of July. However, total US retail sales maintained strong growth momentum, driven by multiple nonfood sectors—including sports and leisure goods and home improvement. Although some sectors remained negative in July, they saw a substantial sequential easing of sales declines.

Using data from the US Census Bureau, this report looks at which retail sectors saw sales surge and which did not do well in July 2020.
