Area retailers are being forced to think outside the box when it comes to selling their products while the general public is being forced to stay home. E-Commerce is nothing new for many businesses because they already have websites where they can show off their products and make transactions. The Door County Habitat for Humanity Restore relies on sales to help fund its mission to provide affordable housing in Door County. Restore Manager Megan Dietz says with only a couple of people in the building due to COVID-19 concerns, they had to get creative.
Dietz says Habitat for Humanity affiliates across the state are following a nationwide trend of employers planning to downsize this month as retailers, restaurants, and others weigh out their options to reduce their hours or close completely.
