Many of our local Portland businesses, such as super markets and grocery stores, are also facing a sudden influx of customers. We have heard from many businesses that they are rapidly hiring and dealing with supply chain issues, in an effort to meet increased customer demand during this time.

Over the course of the last two weeks, we have also seen a steady uptick in the number of business owners calling because they have been locked out of their business.
