CBC News: ‘Waiting to see what happens next’: Edmonton businesses face challenges with COVID-19

Edmonton businesses are concerned about the effects of COVID-19 on their bottom line, with many companies making changes to their services. 

Jeff Nachtigall, co-owner of Edmonton bakery Sugared and Spiced, is one of those business owners. 

“Bakeries don’t have very high-profit margins so a couple of days of decimated traffic could be really painful,” he said.

“We’ve felt a little bit of a slowdown in sales, not a lot. But we’re more concerned about what will happen in the coming days.”

As COVID-19 information quickly evolves and changes, local businesses are wondering what the result will be on their bottom line.
