How Is the Coronavirus Affecting Online Retailers
It’s no secret that the Coronavirus outbreak in the United States is already beginning to negatively impact certain industries and businesses. Travel is down, restaurants are being forced to close early and only open for takeout and delivery, and malls and other retail stores are seeing a dip in business as social distancing is encouraged.
Already, the Coronavirus has caused an increase in sales of items such as masks, hand sanitizer, Clorox/Lysol wipes, disinfectants, gloves, bottled water, vitamins, and of course — toilet paper.
If you are an online retailer, you have the benefit of being open to remain open for business. Some businesses will likely see an increase in sales during this time, while others may experience a negative impact due to difficulties in getting product or a lack in demand.
