Alcohol Sales Drop For The First Time Since Pandemic Began

Alcohol sales in the U.S. dropped last week for the first time since the pandemic began.

One year ago at this time, alcohol sales shot up 55% as people stocked up for the quarantine. But sales were down 2 percent last week, with wine sales dropping 8 percent.

That’s not to say people aren’t still enjoying a beverage or two – alcohol sales are still up 20-30% over March of 2019.
