Most retailers in Canada suffered significantly due to the drop in foot traffic during COVID-19. The strong spike in e-commerce sales was not enough to offset the loss in stores during the lockdown, especially in department stores, leisure and personal goods and even apparel and footwear specialist retailers. Many retailers also were impacted by lower demand from consumers that were more financially impacted by business closures and job losses reduced their spending on non-essentials.

The Retailing in Canada 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.
