In this episode of The Stockout, Mike Baudendistel says consumer behavior is beginning to look the way it did before the COVID-19 pandemic, and he shares several stories that directly indicate a shift back to traditional spending habits.

Those spending habits include buying higher-end beauty and self-care products, shifting back to in-person shopping and spending on necessities for returning to work.

Baudendistel also discusses the latest transportation rate increases, including parcel surcharges for retail deliveries, and other trends in e-commerce.
