Highlights from our May 2020 Retail Traffic report: 

  • Although May saw a deep year-over-year decline in store traffic, it represented an improvement from April as many states began to lift coronavirus-led lockdowns. 
  • Nonessential retailers have been severely impacted by Covid-19 store closures—with the apparel sector experiencing the largest traffic decline. 
  • Declines varied by region due to the phased approaches to retail reopening taken by different states.
