State Journal-Register: “There’s a fierce battle in downtown Springfield and Dumb Records is the epicenter”

We have once again made the local paper it looks like. Yesterday the article, “There’s a fierce battle in downtown Springfield and Dumb Records is the epicenter” went up online over at sj-r.com, and it appears as if this is going to be in print tomorrow for the big Sunday newspaper in the local business section. Thank you to Brenden Moore for writing the article. From the article:

“Running a small business amid a global pandemic is not easy. Many conversations center around how to adapt to the current reality of social distancing and capacity limits and simply surviving in order to reach better times.

This is perhaps most pertinent for business owners running brick-and-mortar stores in downtown Springfield, who have been hurt by the loss of foot traffic as much of the downtown labor force continues to work from home while tourists have stayed away.”

WordPress, why won’t you let us do quote-blocks anymore? Why did you have to take that away? You can check out the full article online right here. You also should be able to find it in tomorrow’s Sunday print issue of the State Journal-Register.
