Doing Business During COVID-19

If you missed the HPBA Webinar May 1, 2020, then scroll down to watch on YouTube.


Is it possible to do business during COVID-19?
How can you bring in revenue and keep your doors (figuratively) open when your customers are being told to stay home?

There are ways to do just that and HPBA conducted a webinar for its members to share some tips from several successful retailers.

Across the U.S. and Canada, some stores are shut down, some are partly open, and many are using this time to re-think how they do business.

Everyone agrees that the ‘new normal’ will not be the old normal anytime soon, and this includes how we work as retailers.

Hear from five retailers across the U.S. and Canada and how they are taking this time to rethink or remake how they do business. Learn how they are making lemonade out of COVID-19 lemons.

From Halifax to Spokane, and Springfield to Vancouver, these retailers are exploring new ways to do business in this strange time. What’s more, they are planning to carry these new methods into the new normal that will someday follow the pandemic. One of them has even sold more grills this April than last- “curbside only, of course”
