Local shops trading through Coronavirus


Retailers are telling me that it is great to see just how the people who never saw before are surprised by just how much stock they do have in their shop. As a result, they have many new customers now.

This is helped as many retailers are now displaying enormous flexibility, and bring new products, arranging collection points for telephone, click and collect, using social media and e-commerce sites and pushing home delivery. I think it is inspiring.


Here is what one enterprising retailer, I saw doing.


It is not the strongest or the most intelligent who will survive but those who can best manage change.
