Canadians are still shopping alot at supermarkets, but nowhere near the hoarding frenzy seen back in mid-March when COVID-19 measures were first announced.
According to a special Statistics Canada report on how shopping patterns have changed since the pandemic hit, grocery store sales continue to be high.
They were up 19% year-over-year in the week ending April 11.
However, grocery store sales had shot up 40% in the week that ended March 21.
The federal agency says toilet paper sales have moderated but were still 81% higher in mid-April compared with the same time last year, while sales of hand sanitizer were up 345%, masks and gloves up 114% and soap up 68% .
