All regions of Canada are reopening or are at least anticipating reopening. But these are unusual and challenging times and when we reopen things are going to be different from the pre-virus era when we had to suddenly shut down or at least slow down.
You are going to need three key things to effect a successful reopening:
- Safety (social distancing, hand washing, masks, notices etc.);
- Liquidity (cash to operate); and
- Creativity (adjusting to and taking advantage of a changed way of doing business)
If you’re not sure how to deal with any or all of the above, seek advice. They’re all going to be important for your shops’ survival for at least the foreseeable future.
