The Boom in Online Grocery Set to Last Beyond the Pandemic

COVID-19 is forcing more consumers to use e-commerce to do their grocery shopping, and the expectation is that this trend will continue well beyond the pandemic.

Due to the recession, consumers will most likely cut costs in the restaurant space, and any shift away from consumer foodservice will naturally benefit grocery retailers as consumers eat more in their homes. Grocery stores will prioritize operational efficiency going forward, with increased pressure to find the best locations for distribution.
