smallbusbreakFurther to my post yesterday and a last week about I saw another shop closed on Monday night in Launceston.

While I don’t know the circumstances, any shop closing for an extended period gives customers a message about priorities. It encourages them to shop elsewhere.

I am seeing closures such as this in small gift shops and toy shops. These are opportunities for us.

    There is an old saying, “Are you working on the business or in the business”. The business owner should primarily be working on the business and this situation wouldn’t arise as they would have other non-family members working “in” the business.
