The spread of COVID-19 has had a financial impact on us all, but in this age of quarantine few struggle more than small businesses. And among small businesses, independent bookstores can be some of the hardest hit by our health crisis. Many bookstores have been forced to reduce staff and operations to the bare essentials, even as they fight to continue supporting their customers through the pandemic. Others have been forced to close altogether. Yet, even with the odds stacked against them, some bookstores have managed to make a tremendous comeback as a result of their community’s support.
