Black / African American consumers showed the largest share growth year-over-year at Amazon, gaining 7 points of share in 2021.
- Walmart was the top retailer for Gen Z shoppers on Black Friday, while Amazon held the top spot for all other generations. Both Walmart and Target’s elevated share numbers with Gen Z were driven by their in-store divisions.
