However, despite massive demand for deliveries, there has only been a minor upswing in online sales. All 10 of the main supermarkets grew in the last 12 weeks, according to the Kantar data. German discounters Lidl and Aldi performed strongly, growing by 17.6% and 11% respectively over the last 12 weeks. Iceland saw its sales up 11.7%, while the Co-op's convenience stores helped boost its sales by 9.4%. Online-only supermarket Ocado, which was forced to take a days-long time-out as its website struggled to cope with the traffic, attracted 133,000 new customers in the last 12 weeks, with sales growing 12.5%.
