US Survey Update: Product Returns amid the Pandemic (Select Findings)

What's Inside

This report provides select findings from Coresight Research’s November 10 survey of US consumers on their behaviors and expectations, with a focus on implications for retailers. This week, we discuss consumer attitudes toward product returns amid the pandemic and for the 2020 holiday season.

This report is available for free and can be accessed by registering for a free account. We highlight selected findings from our weekly survey across three key topics:

  1. Consumer preferences for product returns—whether in-store or online—amid the pandemic
  2. Consumer expectations for post-holiday returns
  3. The sustained penetration of e-commerce

Our full report is available to premium subscribers and includes further findings on the following:

  • 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 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
