As a result of the pandemic and the global lockdown, there was a significant increase in volume of online shopping. At the time, online shopping retailers worldwide recorded gains during the stay-home period.

As online retailers generated increases during the stay-home period, other firms were recorded losses in their stocks. Swedish multinational retail company H&M – Hennes & Mauritz AB – (Stockholm: HM.B) reported an unexpected loss in 2020 Q3.

In the quarter, H&M sales dropped 16% to 51 million kronor, which equals $5.7 million. The group noted that the losses are caused by global lockdown. However, H&M added that the company was already recovering from the negative effects of the health crisis.

Despite recording declines and plans to close hundreds of stores, H&M said there is an increase in its online shopping as many people resorted to online shopping to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
