Management Discussion
  • Total sales were $41.5 billion in the first quarter of 2020, compared to $37.3 billion in the first quarter of 2019. This increase was due to an increase in total sales to retail customers without fuel, partially offset by a reduction in supermarket fuel sales and decreased sales due to the disposal of Turkey Hill Dairy and You Technology in the first quarter of 2019. Total sales excluding fuel and dispositions increased 19.1% in the first quarter of 2020, compared to the first quarter of 2019. The increase in total sales to retail customers without fuel for the first quarter of 2020, compared to the first quarter of 2019, was primarily due to our identical sales increase, excluding fuel, of 19.0%, partially offset by decreased sales due to the deconsolidation of Lucky’s Market. The significant increase in identical sales, excluding fuel, was caused by unprecedented demand for products across grocery and fresh departments due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our identical sales, excluding fuel, in the first quarter of 2020 leading into the COVID-19 pandemic were strong. February identical sales, excluding fuel, exceeded our internal expectations, and were ahead of identical sales trends, excluding fuel, that we experienced near the end of fiscal year 2019. The increase in identical sales, excluding fuel, was broad based across all retail divisions and remained heightened throughout the quarter as customers adjusted to the new restrictions and started preparing and eating more meals at home. During the pandemic, customers reduced trips while significantly increasing basket value. As such, identical sales, excluding fuel, for the first quarter of 2020, compared to the first quarter of 2019, increased primarily due to a significantly higher customer basket value, partially offset by decreased customer transactions.
