Sainsbury's says sales are growing 20% each year

Canadian grocers, brace yourself for some truly mind-boggling online grocery data coming out of one of the U.K.’s top supermarket chains.

Sainsbury’s said this week that its online grocery sales are growing 20% a year, and have almost reached £1 billion per year.

The company also reported that orders often top 190,000 a week.
