The string of record-breaking months in U.S. e-commerce grocery sales ended in August, per the latest results from the Brick Meets Click/Mercatus Grocery Shopping Survey. Total sales came in at $5.7 billion for the month, down from the $7.2 billion peak in June.
The results are still high for the month, closer to sales numbers the organizations reported in May and April, at the start of the coronavirus pandemic. The survey was held Aug. 24-26.
For August results, the average order value increased to a record high of $95 with 75% of survey respondents saying they intend to make a repeat purchase in the next month, alluding to more stock-up shopping habits.
