This month's top performing categories underscore the trend of health and fitness at home, which emerged in March. The investments in home training and fitness have been extraordinary. With gym reopening’s slow to reemerge since the beginning of the crisis, I am watching the at-home fitness equipment market for strong, ongoing growth. Increased sales of products such as water purification is likely driven by severe natural events including hurricanes and wildfires. We saw this category and other survival-type products such as portable power systems grow as consumers invested in home safety."
