We are in the news again! Today, NPR Illinois published an article – “Businesses Worry Online Sales May Not Be Enough To Sustain Them.” Although the title seams grim, we are very thankful for the amount of support we have been getting. Dumb Records owner Brian Galecki spoke with NPR about how even though our online sales are thriving right now, it still will be a while before we can host live events. A snippet from the article:

Brian Galecki, owner of Dumb Records in downtown Springfield, normally sells records and CDs, but since the pandemic hit, he’s been selling t-shirts online. He said his online sales have been strong.

“A big challenge in that still is that even with us doing well, we’re still going to be less than what we would be doing if our physical store is open,” Galecki said.

Again, we are very thankful for the amount of support we have been getting, and we feel we are in a good spot as of right now with our store keeping up with bills! We also are very grateful to anyone who donated to our GoFundMe campaign last month!
