Non-Essential Retail Warms Up For The Post-Crisis Economy

pymnts | April 16, 2020

Wednesday’s Commerce Department retail sales figures showed in no uncertain terms that consumer spending for non-essential goods has taken a huge hit. While the overall drop was in the neighborhood of 8 percent, the plunge in non-essential goods like apparel (down 50.5 percent) and furniture (26.8 percent) represented a deep ditch for those businesses to climb out of. However, new data from PYMNTS shows that some non-essential items are moving online. Data from the PYMNTS COVID-19 Tracker shows that the non-essential plunge occurred between March 6 and 17. The research sweep of March 6 showed that only 29.5 percent had cut back shopping for non-essential goods. In just 10 days, as coronavirus numbers climbed and stores were ordered to shut down, that 29.5 percent spiked to 77.6 percent, to be followed by another 10-point increase in the March 27 survey.
