Sales at British supermarkets in March 2020 beat all previous records as shoppers stocked up for a long period at home amid the coronavirus crisis, according to consumer analysts Kantar.
The busiest spell was between March 16-19th, when 88% of households visited a supermarket. This meant that these households made up to 42 million extra trips across those four days.
In the last four weeks, year-on-year supermarket sales grew by 20.6%.
Overall, there has been more than £10.8bn in sales in the past four weeks – higher than throughout December 2019.
