Report Summary

“With safety top of mind, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic drove record numbers of people to shop online for groceries in 2020. Three years later, and with the worst of the crisis over, more than half (55%) of Spanish consumers continue to shop for groceries online, with the service now being used largely as an alternative to in-store top-up grocery shopping, highlighting opportunities for grocery retailers to leverage their store network to take advantage of this trend, with each outlet having the potential to be turned into an online order fulfilment centre. At the same time, consumers are becoming budget-focused and grocers are under pressure to keep prices low as well as meet shoppers’ growing preference for faster and more convenient deliveries”
