Difference in share of retail visits vs. pre-COVID-19 average

w/c 25th May 2020

Data science overview

We know that travel on the whole is still drastically reduced across America, but we can also see a shift in behaviour in where they are travelling to. We analysed retail stores in particular to see how drivers’ habits have changed since COVID-19.

As lockdown restrictions continue to lift, we’re seeing a gradual return to pre-COVID 19 patterns of behaviour. Many restaurants across the US are starting to reopen their doors, despite this the percentage share of retail visits to restaurants remains down, at -3.8% compared to pre-COVID 19 visits. DIY stores and supermarkets continue to take a higher percentage share of visits to retail stores.
