Businesses adapting to help serve customers

PIERRE, S.D. ( — Businesses in South Dakota are making all sorts of changes to keep serving customers in these days of social distancing.

Curb-side service, for example. Nathan Sanderson, President of the State Retailers Association talked about that service.

Sanderson says some grocery stores have started reserved shopping hours for the elderly and others, most at risk of getting the Coronavirus. Restaurants are putting hand sanitizers all over the place, and spacing out tables to keep people farther apart.

And even if you can’t get to a business, or don’t want to, Sanderson says at least show them some ‘love’ online.

That way they can use all the praise to help jump-start their businesses when things get back to normal.

He expects most businesses will weather this unprecedented storm, but, unfortunately, not all.
