We are at day 51 of stay-at-home lock down in response to COVID-19. While we believe this is the right course of action, this extended period of social distancing is affecting many businesses in a hard way. The government funds will help many businesses to survive. Other businesses will not be so lucky. Many are transferring their sales online. An internet store is still a viable sales solution during this crisis.
