Retail Business In A Global Pandemic (S02-E01‪)‬ Quantumly Leaping Podcast

    • Technology

      In a one-in-a-century global pandemic some businesses were hit hard that they permanently close and some made billions in all types of business sectors. Retail business sector was no difference, we saw big retailers making more money than ever while small and medium retailers mostly suffer much to survive or even close because of the lockdowns. Yet, that wasn’t the major rule to all SMB and local retailers. We saw some survive fine, some with slight improvement and some with even better success than ever before. Yet, the story is not finished. Now that we’re expected to be done from the pandemic by the end of 2021, we’re going into a new norm. Life might get back to some of the old normal but a lot of things are going to change, and they’ll change for ever. We might not know exactly what it will look like but when it comes to business, we definitely know it will change forever. In this episode we concentrate on the retail business especial local SMB. Our guest Ms. Barbara J. Crowhurst to tell us all about it, before the pandemic, during and after. Barbara’s Short Bio Barbara J.
