By the Numbers

52%

That's how much online sales grew for the Levi Strauss & Co. in the company's third quarter compared to the same quarter last year. The San Francisco-based company said the increase helped offset losses elsewhere in the business, such as bricks-and-mortar stores.

Today's Quote/Unquote:

"We expect the shift online to further accelerate this holiday season, and Amazon enters its busiest quarter already seeing heavy demand and delivery times not yet normalized to pre-Covid-19 levels. But we believe Amazon is well-positioned to handle the holiday surge, with the company increasing warehouse square footage 50% — including opening 100 new operations buildings in September — and Amazon Logistics set to deliver more than 50% of all packages from Amazon fulfillment centers, thereby reducing dependence on third-party shippers."

— Doug Anmuth, a J.P. Morgan analyst, in a research note to the company's clients, in regard to Amazon's upcoming Prime Day on Oct. 13-14. Anmuth expects Amazon to generate $7.5 billion in revenue this year, up about 42% from an estimated $5.3 billion in 2019. (Barron's)
