Monthly retail sales of grocery stores in Canada 2015-2019 Monthly sales of grocery stores in Canada reached approximately 8.04 billion Canadian dollars in April 2019. This figure has gradually increased over the given survey period – in 2015 the average monthly sales value was 7.27 billion dollars. An all-time high was recorded in September 2018 when sales amounted to around 8.09 billion dollars.

Canadians prefer shopping in-store

As of December 2018, there were over 15,600 grocery stores located across Canada, signaling an ongoing demand for brick-and-mortar grocery stores, despite the rise of e-commerce in the Canadian retail sector. According to a recent survey, over 91 percent of surveyed Canadians stated that they spend more on groceries bought in-store than online. Some of the leading reasons preventing shoppers from buying groceries online in Canada include lack of interest, shipping costs and the risk of perishables going off.

Leading grocery retailers

In the 2018/19 fiscal year, Loblaw Cos. Ltd. was the leading food retailer in Canada, with a grocery sales value of around 45.63 billion Canadian dollars. Sobeys Inc. and Metro Inc. ranked in second and third, with sales of approximately 24.62 and 10.8 billion Canadian dollars respectively.
