In 2020, as the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the world, the US retailing landscape was fundamentally transformed. Mandates implemented in many US states and municipalities at the onset of the pandemic that forced retailers deemed “non-essential” to temporarily shutter stores proved relatively short-lived, with almost all bricks-and-mortar retail outlets across the US reopened to the public by late spring.

This 'Retailing in USA' report offers insight into key trends and developments driving the industry. The report examines all retail channels to provide sector insight. Channels include hypermarkets, supermarkets, discounters, convenience stores, mixed retailers, health and beauty retailers, clothing and footwear retailers, furniture and furnishing stores, DIY and hardware stores, durable goods retailers, leisure and personal goods retailers. There are profiles of leading retailers, with analysis of their performance and the challenges they face. There is also analysis of non-store retailing: vending; homeshopping; internet retailing; direct selling, as available.
