Tech helps businesses change on the fly

Door County businesses are embracing technology while bracing for the impact the COVID-19 outbreak could have on their bottom line. With non-essential travel being discouraged, it is anybody’s guess when the “busy season” will start and end in Door County. Grocery stores like Main Street Market in Egg Harbor have already had to adjust with employees doing the shopping for customers one email at a time. Wood Orchard Market in Egg Harbor is preparing for a delayed start to the season by introducing a web-based ordering system where customers can drive-up, scan a QR code, and shop for their favorite items without leaving their car. Owner Crista Kochanski says the system has been duplicated across the country and believes in times like these, you have to adjust.

In addition to a limited amount of their own products, Wood Orchard Market is partnering with other local vendors affected by COVID-19 to sell items like bread, milk, and meat.
