  • The SQDC booked a total profit of $18M over the first three quarters of fiscal 2020.
  • Online revenue represented 6.5% of sales ($7.3M) in the most recent quarter.

Both the SQDC’s online and brick-and-mortar sales have increased in recent weeks, but the crown corporation does not share its sales figures and refused to say whether the increase was “weak, moderate, or important,” or which products were most popular.
