In Good Company | Issue No. 4
We have observed the tough decisions business owners and individuals have had to make in light of these unprecedented times. We know that everyone is doing the best they can under these dire circumstances. We also feel it is important to shine a light on local businesses and community members and the remarkable ways in which they’ve quickly pivoted to adapt to the changing landscape despite the difficult decisions they have had to make.
