Grocery shopping levels still increasing but not at frenzied levels


DAVID JOLES – Star Tribune

Shoppers Diane and Jack Dalin of Bloomington searched for bread while navigating the aisles of Lunds and Byerlys in Edina during an early morning hour devoted to older shoppers and shoppers with health conditions.

Traffic and basket size at local supermarkets shifted from record- breaking to more modest jumps last week, allowing the stores to replenish shelves with basics and items for Easter and Passover meals.

"The speed at which this occurred went from zero to 400 in four days," Curt Funk, senior vice president of merchandising for Lunds & Byerlys, said of the buying sprees in the past month. "We plan for many months for the Christmas surge, and this was worse, but sales are starting to level off now."
