While overall retail was down in April, e-commerce is exploding.

“The biggest trend emerging, rather than buying online and having those products shipped to us is that we’re buying online and picking up in-store. These transactions tripled compared to April of last year, and this trend is likely to be part of the new normal well into the future.”
– Jeff Sloan
