Some states are vying for a full reopening soon, but these numbers show we still have a long way to go.

“The Q1 data leaves us very optimistic about consumer foot traffic throughout spring and leading into summer. Retailers should leverage these cues to start planning their ramp-up strategies: whether it’s expanding business hours, re-hiring, or picking up marketing efforts. Barring any unforeseen setbacks, we anticipate that these trends will continue to gain momentum moving forward.” – Megan Wintersteen, VP of Marketing at Zenreach.
