US Survey Update: Fewer Consumers Visit Shopping Centers This November (Full Report)

What's Inside

Coresight Research’s November 24 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.

This week, we focus on the decline in visits to shopping centers. Our findings cover the following:

  • The declining trend in respondent’s visits to both open-air and enclosed shopping centers, including a breakdown by age group
  • What activities respondents have done in the past two weeks and what they expect to do in the next two weeks, with a focus on expectations for visiting stores and shopping centers in the next two weeks
  • The select discretionary categories in which there have been new highs in the proportions of US shoppers that are making more purchases online than pre-crisis
  • Whether respondents are currently avoiding public areas or travel—and which types of places or travel they are avoiding
  • Whether respondents are buying more or less of any retail categories as a result of Covid-19 and, if so, which types of products
  • Whether US shoppers are making more purchases online during the coronavirus pandemic and, if so, which categories

The findings provide an update to our previous reports, which were based on surveys undertaken on November 17, November 10, November 3October 27October 20October 13October 6September 29September 22September 15September 9September 2August 26August 19August 12August 5July 29July 22July 15July 8July 1June 24June 17June 10June 3May 27May 20May 13May 6April 29April 22April 15April 8April 1March 25 and March 17–18.
