    The Biggest Thing in Online Shopping? A Store.

    (Bloomberg Opinion) -- It’s no surprise to hear that retailers’ online sales are surging through the coronavirus pandemic. But would you guess that for some of the biggest winners, it’s their physical stores that gave those sales a boost? Even as consumers grapple with stay-at-home orders and their own fears of contagion, a surprisingly large number are willing to pick up their digital orders at a store. Target Corp. on Wednesday said sales through its curbside drive-up option — shoppers order online, pick up at a store — increased 1,000% in April compared to a year earlier. More than 2 million customers tested out the drive-up feature for the first time, the big-box retailer said, and the volume was so strong that there were more orders collected that way in the first quarter than in all of 2019. Sales through Lowes.com were up 80% in the three months ended May 1, and more than half of those online orders were picked up in a store, the home-improvement retailer said on Wednesday. Walmart Inc. and Home Depot Inc., which both reported results on Tuesday, observed the same trends. “It’s time we stop referring to our Supercenter pickup and delivery capability as online grocery because it’s becoming much more,” Walmart CEO Doug McMillon said on the company’s earnings call. There are a couple of takeaways from this. First, it seems that for all the hand-wringing over the lasting impact to physical retail real estate from the pandemic, stores still have a role to play, when used appropriately. As skyrocketing demand snarled logistics networks and caused huge delays in deliveries, customers were willing to be flexible to get the items they needed. Practically speaking, there’s not a huge difference risk-wise between retrieving a box from your front porch and picking one up from the curb of a store. Having that option may have helped the likes of Target, Walmart, Home Depot and Lowe’s capture sales from customers who were stumped by sold-out notices at online-only retailers or who previously did most of their shopping at a physical location. Notably, Walmart cited customers aged 50 years and older as a demographic that saw significant growth. Meanwhile, Women’s Wear Daily has reported that Amazon.com Inc. is exploring a potential deal with bankrupt retailer J.C. Penney Co. It's not exactly clear what the Internet giant's intention would be, but one possibility is that it could be a bid to add more options for online-order distribution such as curbside pickup.The nature of square footage may have to evolve; Target talked about the need to add more parking spots and storage space. And this model isn’t going to work for all retailers; those that didn’t have an effective digital strategy beforehand may be caught irreversibly flat-footed. Lowe’s Cos. CEO Marvin Ellison sounded audibly relieved that his company had invested in improving its e-commerce capabilities when it did. “What we’re seeing is that the customers simply want to shop the way that they choose to, and in the past, we couldn’t accommodate that,” Ellison said on Lowe’s earnings call on Wednesday. “When we started to get requests from customers for curbside, we put that up and going in three days. This time last year, it would have been impossible to do that because we didn't have the infrastructure.” There's reason to believe customer buy-in for curbside or in-store pickup will hold: 40% of drive-up customers at Target have made a repeat purchase. This puts the margin pressure that retailers faced in the pandemic quarter in perspective. Profitability at Target and Walmart was squeezed by both the types of items customers were ordering — food and essentials are less lucrative than more discretionary items like clothing  — and by the shift toward digital. But having the customers pick up their own orders is much more profitable than delivering the products to their homes. Online ordering may account for more than 17% of retail sales in the U.S. this year, up from 13.9% in 2019, according to GlobalData. If retailers can continue to convert a meaningful portion of that demand into pickup versus delivery, it will provide an offset to the inherently higher supply-chain operating costs of a digital model. Target customers that use its drive-up option for the first time also tend to spend more at the company overall than they did previously, the company said. Asked what kind of permanent changes he envisions in the post-pandemic world, Target CEO Brian Cornell said his “highlight and takeaway is stores are vitally important and stores will continue to play a really important role to America as we go forward." Who would have thought that a virus outbreak that's relegated so much of our lives to our homes would put such a premium on brick-and-mortar? This column does not necessarily reflect the opinion of the editorial board or Bloomberg LP and its owners.Brooke Sutherland is a Bloomberg Opinion columnist covering deals and industrial companies.

    Home Depot Proves It’s an Essential Shopping Outlet

    Investors had high hopes for Home Depot's (NYSE: HD) first-quarter earnings report even though the COVID-19 pandemic pressured most of the retail industry. The chain responded to the pandemic by cutting store hours and making other moves aimed at limiting customer traffic, yet expectations were for robust sales growth as many consumers used the shelter-in-place time to work on home projects. Home Depot's report confirmed this bullish reading and showed that the market leader was a key shopping destination over the last few months.

    Investors had expected Walmart (NYSE: WMT) to report strong sales growth in its fiscal 2021 first quarter (which ended May 1) given the rush to stockpile food and other essential products in March, but the retail giant blew those expectations away. Walmart posted comparable sales growth of 10%, with U.S. e-commerce sales jumping 74%. Sales were up at all three of its business segments, rising by about 10% at Walmart U.S. and Sam's Club and increasing 3.4% at international stores.

    Costco (NASDAQ: COST) and Lowe's (NYSE: LOW) are both large, national retail chains that were deemed essential services and have stayed open throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Costco's bread and butter is, well, bread and butter, and other consumer staples (often sold in bulk), while Lowe's product line focus is home improvement. While they're not direct competitors, Costco's stores sell a good amount of general home improvement products, but Lowe's is the niche reseller.

    Home Depot Slides After Pandemic Costs Counter Sales Gains

    (Bloomberg) -- Home Depot Inc. fell as the cost of Covid-19 measures offset higher sales, tempering financial gains from renewed consumer interest in home-improvement projects.A pretax expense of $850 million to support workers reduced diluted earnings by 60 cents a share in the first quarter, Home Depot said Tuesday in a statement. Despite a gain in sales, total profit trailed Wall Street estimates, the chain’s first earnings miss since 2014.The results underwhelmed as investors anticipated robust growth for the company, whose stores were deemed essential and have stayed open during the pandemic. The stock has soared in recent as quarantined Americans spend more on fixing up their homes.The company left a lot of sales on the table by cutting back on promotions and operating hours during the quarter. That reduction in discounting showed up in transactions, which fell 3.9%. Still, the size of each purchase rose 11% on average, pushing total sales growth to the highest level in more than a year.Home Depot fell 1.8% to $241.02 a share at 9:58 a.m. in New York.Recent GainsThere were promising signs. Same-store sales growth accelerated to a double-digit gain in April and that rate has continued through the first two weeks of its second quarter, the company said. The metric increased 6.4% in the first quarter.“Early second-quarter sales are strong,” Chief Executive Officer Craig Menear said on a call with analysts. “We see that across geographies. Everything is lifting.”First-quarter sales rose in 17 of 19 geographic regions, with declines in the New York City and south Florida areas.Like many companies during the pandemic, Home Depot suspended its full-year forecast due to widespread uncertainty around Covid-19 and its impact on the broader economy.Home Depot likely saw softness in its pro business, aimed at contractors, due to shelter-in-place rules triggered by the pandemic, according to RBC analyst Scot Ciccarelli. Recent credit-card transaction data pointed to Home Depot’s sales growing more than 10%, but those figures likely don’t capture all of the pro business, Ciccarelli said today in a note to clients.(An earlier version corrected the name of analyst in the final paragraph)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
