PEechBm9As Coronavirus cases rise and more restrictions are put in place, consumers are being forced to adapt to a new reality. Currently, American consumers are spending an average of nearly $180 per shopping trip for Coronavirus-related supplies. Our March study around the impact the virus has had on shopping behavior revealed a significant shift in how different generations are changing their shopping behavior to prepare for potential weeks or months in isolation -particularly Baby Boomers, the generation at the highest risk.
