what is a period at grocery stores? What are considered normal periods at grocery stores? Slow periods?

I'm talking about months.. not days of the week or times of the day..

    My answer is for stores located in the Pacific Northwest of the USA. Busy seasons will vary according to location, at least to some extent. For example, consider a country like Costa Rica, where it's basically summery weather all year long. Grocery stores there probably don't have a 'slow winter season' like in the PNW, simply because there isn't really a winter there.

    January - February: slow

    March - May: store gradually gets busier, 'normal'

    June - August: busiest period other than end-of-year holidays

    September - mid November: gradually less business, but 'normal'

    mid-November to New Year's: very busy

    Source(s): worked in grocery stores for about 15 years

    I could not tell you. Normal seasonality would be thrown out the window in a pandemic though.
