There’s no time like the present to continue the practice of shopping small where you can. This weekend, Governor Lamont, along with governors in neighboring states announced more closures for businesses. As of 8PM on Monday 3/23, Governor Lamont is asking non-essential businesses to close if they have not already done so. You can read the exemptions here.
