Local businesses do the Digital Pandemic Pivot – with unexpectedly good results

“Our online presence was not the strongest prior to the pandemic,” said co-owner Marissa Korocil. “It was always our goal for the future of the store, we just got a little shove.”

Overall, they are doing well, according to Marissa, garnering sales from further afield, including in the United States. “We were rather surprised, thinking a small little game store like ours is reaching that far. It was really cool!” 

For these and other local entrepreneurs, a digital pivot that was borne out of necessity has resulted in a horizon of new opportunity. By developing their digital strategies and smarts, they have helped ensure that their businesses will emerge from the pandemic in a stronger position for the future.
