Madison, WI — The International Dairy Deli Bakery Association (IDDBA) has released their fourth COVID-19 Impact Report this week.
During the week of April 12, many stores further sharpened safety measures, such as metered entry, asking shoppers to limit visits to one person per cart and encouraging consumers to wear masks and shop just once a week, while avoiding stocking up on any one item. Dairy and total store bakery saw elevated demand, whereas deli sales remained mixed. The fresh perimeter saw a wide range of performances. Boosted by a dollar sales increase of 42.9% in meat, the total perimeter increased 17.6% over the week of April 12 compared to the comparable week in 2019.
