The statistics are staggering for small businesses following natural disasters: according to FEMA, roughly 40-60% of small businesses that close after a disaster never reopen
A survey of our own community showed that 61% of our businesses have lost over 50% of their revenue and 36% more than 75%.  If this only goes on 1-2 more months 27% of the business are at risk of closure, but if it goes on 3-5 months 54% of the businesses are at risk!
Our local businesses are the heart and soul of this community.  People come to the Monticello area for the unique products and services they provide.  We need our local businesses to survive this shut-down!!  Each dollar spent at a local, independent business returns 50 times more money to the local economy than shopping at a mega e-retailer.  These small businesses provide the community with good jobs, quality service and the character that makes Monticello feel like home.
