(AVONDALE, La) — The coronavirus pandemic is changing the way that people shop. For many, online shopping has replaced in-store visits. Now, businesses are enhancing their online offerings to keep up with the trends and to find new ways to connect with their customers. Even before the pandemic, data shows that e-commerce is growing at a steady rate around the globe. According to Statista, experts predict that retail e-commerce sales will reach over $4 trillion this year.
