Coronavirus' effect on businesses that are open: empty shelves
October 14, 2020
Spots on store shelves remain empty of stock across Sweet Home, as gaps in inventory have narrowed after eight months of COVID-19 pandemic.
While specific stores in town are seeing runs on their products, the problem isn't just local: it's state and nationwide, said Oregon Business and Industries CEO Sandra McDonough.
"There's the disruption in global markets. There is what happens when people stay at home and they can't go anywhere so they look for projects. And then, you know, the tragedy of the fires, which is just going to have to create a whole 'nother issue for some supplies."
