'We've Done Everything We Can': Small-Business Owners Struggle With Decision To Close

Tens of thousands of small businesses across the country have closed their doors permanently as the coronavirus pandemic drags on.

Some owners weathered shutdowns in the spring, a host of new restrictions and a drop in customers over the last 6½ months — and there’s still no end in sight.

Many businesses are calling for more economic relief to get through the winter, but negotiations in Congress for additional federal funding have stalled out.

That leaves many local small-business owners in a tight spot — weighing whether to cut their losses now or risk an uncertain future. St. Louis Public Radio spoke with several owners about how they made that difficult decision.

1. Tell it to your trump-worshipping senators. They're responsible for all of this.

2. "negotiations in Congress for additional federal funding have stalled out."

NO, they did not "stall out" - they were shut down by IQ45 - then "on" again - then ???????????

More of the "they all do it" - not facing the facts!
