On the financial side of things, the pandemic has not dampened earnings as Loblaw’s releases its latest quarterly financial report.
For the fourth quarter of 2020, the company says revenue was 7.1 percent higher than the last quarter of 2019. Its retail sales component rose more than 12-Million dollars over the same quarter a year earlier, an increase of 7.5 percent.
However, increases in revenue are offset by the spending needed to cope with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Loblaw says that at its stores across the country it has spent about 42-Million dollars on COVID-19 related costs to ensure the safety and security of customers and employees.
