Retailers Use Delivery And Deep Discounting To Stay Afloat

Retailers Use Delivery, Discounts To Stay Afloat

Retailers are beginning to deliver to consumers’ homes or ramping up their ability to do so during the coronavirus crisis. Adore Me has made its in-home lingerie delivery service a higher priority, while Caviar has doubled down on its business model. And in brick-and-mortar retail, the gap between essential and non-essential retail continues to grow as deep discounters and dollar stores bring on more stores, employees and revenue. All this, Today in Data.
