US Consumer Tracker: Signs of Consumers’ Return to In-Store Shopping (Full Report)

What's Inside

Coresight Research’s January 18 survey provides a detailed update on US consumers’ behaviors, concerns and expectations amid the coronavirus crisis, with a focus on the implications for US retail.

Our tracker questions cover the following:

  • What product categories respondents had purchased in-store and online in the past two weeks
  • Which retailers respondents had bought food and nonfood products from in the past two weeks
  • What activities respondents have done in the past two weeks and what they expect to do in the next two weeks
  • Whether respondents are currently avoiding public areas—and which types of places they are avoiding

We also present findings and trend data on shoppers’ current shopping and online spending habits—including what they are buying more and less of than pre-pandemic.

If you do not have a premium subscription, you can access select findings in a complimentary abridged report.
