It is more critical than ever nowadays to support small businesses. It is already a struggle for many small businesses to maintain a customer base and gain a significant level of profits (remember them?). Furthermore, the unexpected and unforeseen events that affect the economy is another dreadful challenge many of these companies face on Main St.
With everything being at a halt for over a month now, businesses are severely hurt. Many of these companies had a significant loss in business due to being locked down and under house arrest.
On the other hand, many of these companies were able to make some sales by delivering their customers’ orders at their homes. Other companies were able to remotely handle their office jobs at home. There were also some companies that were able to consult with their clients over the phone or virtually through conference calls.
These strategies helped these businesses but in limited ways. And as a result, thus far, these companies still endured significant losses.
