'What will we do?' Small businesses closing over coronavirus worry about impact
WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS) -- Coronavirus fears are forcing some local bars and restaurants to shut down dine-in areas, while other local businesses are choosing to close temporarily.
Shannon Trenholme owns Rocket Baby Bakery on 6822 West North Avenue in Wauwatosa. She's doing her part to help stop the spread of coronavirus and will close for at least a few weeks.
The bakery held a sort-of farmer's market on Tuesday, March 17 to sell leftover bread and pastries.
Trenholme said closing wasn't an easy decision.
"What will that look like? What will we do? We have a lot of families. There's the shift in schedules. Then there's safety, health precautions, stuff like that," said Trenholme.
Trenholme said in the meantime, they're going to brainstorm other ways to get their products out there.
