Consumer Trends: The (Partial-) Reopening Special
When we started this project earlier this summer, the “reopening” appeared to be in full swing, as Covid-19 case counts fell and US consumer activity rebounded. But the Delta variant and vaccine polarization are now leading to increased uncertainty.
- A 49-slide presentation highlighting what’s changed the most — and what hasn’t — as the pandemic rewrote the rules of consumer behavior and spending.
- Topics include the continued shift to online grocery (and what it means), the future of digital home fitness, signs of a K-shaped recovery, the “Roaring ‘20s” question mark, and what’s next.
- Custom data on consumer spending and foot traffic provided by Earnest Research.
- Results from our latest original Consumer Trends survey of more than 3,000 US consumers, in partnership with Toluna.
