For this reason they are focused solely on just their online presence for the time being. There is a business that reached their record in online sales recently because of the closures. There is still the threat of loss when it comes when it comes to having to close the brick and mortar store, but there is at least one channel that can remain open.

- Some businesses are investing increasing amounts of funds and resources into development of their e-commerce channels
