The United Kingdom is home to a whopping 87,141 grocery stores. We've taken a look at the UK's favorite places to shop, how supermarket sales fared during the pandemic and how much British people spend on their weekly groceries. When it comes to the most popular store for everyday food and products, 60% of those surveyed said Tesco. However, Sainsbury's has a larger market share than Tesco, which could mean that it earns more money per individual store.
We've also looked into the sales figures of supermarkets during the pandemic. Despite the lockdown, supermarkets have seen an increase in sales due to people stocking up on essentials. This has been a boon for supermarkets, as they have been able to keep their doors open and continue to serve customers. Finally, we've looked into how much British people spend on their weekly groceries.
On average, British households spend £50 per week on groceries. This figure is slightly higher than the average for other countries in Europe.
