Covid-19 Changes Spending Habits



We all have seen the detrimental effects the COVID-19 pandemic has had on our communities. The loss of jobs, inability to stock up on basic necessities, and lack of person-to-person contact are just a few of the things we went months without. As our society is finally returning to “normal” due to the introduction of vaccines, we are all opening up our doors and spending more time with those we love. Before we discuss the bright future ahead, let's take a moment to reflect on the past.

During the heart of the pandemic, many industries were struggling. A variety of businesses had to shut their doors due to a lack of customers and need for their products. Contrarily, other industries boomed due to a want for their goods and services. Among these was the home improvement industry. Americans allocated record levels of capital toward home improvements; a study by Harvard University researchers determined home improvement spending increased 3% during 2020. Housebound Americans found themselves stuck inside for longer than ever before; so, what better time than now to finish the projects around the house you had been previously putting off?

Now that we have discussed the past, let’s discuss the bright future. At Four Seasons, we recognize the time for growth is now. Individuals are regaining economic and social stability, while spending on home improvement continues to reside at record levels as people long for more time around friends and family in the comfort of their homes. Families are reuniting all over the country after a long period apart. People are leaving confinement to attend and host gatherings. Our time inside prevails, as the pandemic is still very real, but we are lucky to have the opportunity to invite our loved ones over like in old times.
