American consumers are still spending on home and garden materials online—even as they’ve pulled back over the past year on purchases of clothing, recreational goods, and vehicles, according to a Stacker analysis of Census Bureau data.

The analysis looked at online retail categories that benefited from increased spending during the pandemic years. In 2020, the pandemic provided a shot in the arm to e-commerce sales as retailers closed stores and laid off staff.
