Press Pass: Pandemic impacting multiple industries

From tourism and hospitality to retail, multiple industries are suffering from the COVID-19 pandemic. Jim Fink of Business First discussed some of the struggles during his monthly appearance on WBFO's Press Pass. Tourism, Fink points out, is suffering on both sides of the Niagara River as the border remains closed. Some retail analysts, Fink says, are predicting as many as 40% of small retail shops are in jeopardy of closing.
