Americans’ buying habits have started to change as the lockdown continues. Walmart CEO Doug McMillion says, “People are starting to need a haircut so you start to see more beard trimmers and hair color and things like that [being sold.] It’s interesting to watch the dynamic play out.”

People have also started buying things like puzzles and games to pass the time in isolation. Consumer behavior has been closely monitored since early March when panicked shoppers started stocking up on basic goods such as toilet paper and hand sanitizer. Experts have predicted the pandemic could cause a permanent change to the retail world.
