Retailers Continue To Adjust To Survive During A Pandemic

The coronavirus pandemic has changed how most retail businesses in the St. Louis region operate.

Businesses face limits on how many people can be inside their buildings. And stores across the region are adapting to mask mandates, social distancing measures and sanitizing routines.

These changes have disrupted the normal operational flow for Goodwill stores in the region, said Mark Kahrs, executive vice president of retail at MERS/Goodwill. He explained that stores have seen around 10% more donations than they did last year at this time because people have spending more time at home.

“We expected a very large increase in donations,” Kahrs said. “We were isolating those donations, not digging through them.”
