When construction happens, it’s most often the small business that feels the squeeze. The Miami Herald details one such tale of woe. The problem in many urban areas is that construction can shut down roads, sidewalks and much more for weeks at a time. Small businesses function on daily sales, foot traffic and work. When the customers are turned away because of construction, it’s the small business that suffers.
Fortunately, there are some measures that can be taken. If your small business is being affected by construction, investigate what you can do about it and don’t let construction destruct your business.
