    • I've been using "My Shop Manager" and it's been great for our business. It also has digital vehicle inspections that seem to work well. Also, with the slowdown from COVID 19 and me having to let my two employees take time off, I contacted them to suspend service for a month or two. They were quick to get back to me and allow us to keep service in order to contact customers and whatnot, but not charge me for this coming month. They are in the fight to help get through this crisis right along with the shops. I really appreciated that from them.  
    • UPDATE TO TEXTING:  We did our 1st mass text blast ever.  WOW!  We did it to our regular customer base.  The phone started ringing right away.

    • I am hearing this story over and over, and not just from our industry.  I spoke to the local deli owner yesterday. Business for him is down 95%.  He is working alone, and has one employee working 2 hours a day. He cannot pay his rent or his bills.   The only thing that I can say is that this will pass.  Right now is seems like the worst of times, and being in business for 40 years, and in New York, I can tell you that I am never seen anything like this.  But, we will prevail. Talk to your banker, accountant, financial advisory. Get the help you need and make those hard decisions.  You need to save the business first, then rebuild when things begin to get better.   I know it may sound fruitless at this point, but maintain a positive and strong attitude. This will help your mind find ways to get through this.  It will not be easy, but we will succeed.    
    • Road traffic is at an all time low as well as our gas volume. Two of my key full time gas attendants and one part time attendant told me today that they are unable to continue working because of health concerns. Totally understandable but my island staff has now been reduced from 10 employees last week to one full time and two part time employees as of today. Impossible to cover our normal gas island business hours from 6am-10pm so I needed to substantially reduce hours Monday thru Saturday and close completely on Sunday. Not my desire but I have no choice. Bays are very busy which is a bit strange considering what is going on around us.

    • Shop owners, if you are having problems with cash flow due to the Coronavirus or even if you are not feeling the effects yet. It is always a good idea to make preparations to have enough cash on hand. With that said, the government has allocated 8 Billion to assist business owners affected by COVID-19 by offering SBA disaster loans and I am helping shop owners with filing their applications. Please see my article for more info.
