Especially online sales increased strongly. Revenues from web shops were nearly 42 percent higher last month than twelve months previously. The Dutch also made more use of web shops at stores that also have brick branches. Online sales at chains that have both physical and digital stores increased by more than 53 percent.
Shoes and clothing
For the first time since the sharp loss of turnover in the spring, shoe stores turned in more in August than a year earlier. Clothing stores still had to deal with a slight year-on-year decline, but it was no longer as severe as it was just after the lockdown measures were announced in March.
In the non-food sector, DIY, electronics and furniture stores accounted for the strongest sales growth. Shops selling food and stimulants increased turnover by 7.6 percent. The turnover of supermarkets increased by 7.4 percent on an annual basis, calculated by Statistics Netherlands.
