Monthly retail sales of U.S. bookstores 2018-2020

Retail sales data for bookstores in the United States for October 2020 showed that the sales of U.S. book retailers amounted to 446 million U.S. dollars worth of merchandise, marking a drop from September. Despite a rise in sales in August and September, overall the coronavirus pandemic negatively impacted sales for the duration of 2020 as stores closed and consumers stopped venturing outdoors to shop.
