Another reason why supermarkets are doing well is personal grocery shopping and delivery. This is when a supermarket team member does the shopping, drops the items off in a special area in the market where the groceries are boxed up and then delivered.

Other businesses doing just fine during the pandemic, according to, are utilities, construction, finance and insurance, manufacturing, retail trade, and professional, scientific, and technical services.
