Local business shares insight into current COVID19 situation

We recently caught up with MRCCI Members, Steve and Sonya Bolesta from Backyard Creations, to hear how their business and their team are adapting to the current health and economic crisis in our region. They shared some great insights:

How has your industry been affected?

“Within our industry, we have noticed a slowing of construction enquiries and less demand for maintenance works, including reduced regular hours or projects being placed on hold. However, we have been liaising with other industry members and it appears that being regionally based, the impacts have been less on businesses like ours, compared to those in the city. We’ve heard that there is more fear in the city due to the higher number of COVID-19 cases and greater density of population. There is also more competition in the city, so when the economy contracts there are a higher number of businesses immediately suffering.”
