DULUTH, MN-- Many northland businesses forced to shut their storefronts while trying to stay afloat by shifting sales online.
Flagship Duluth in Canal Park is one local business hoping to continue sales through online sources.
Flagship staff said this time of year is normally when they host a spring cleaning sale but with the storefront closed they have moved all their sales online and are trying to get bites by offering even bigger discounts.
For Flagship manager Alex Demianiuk, online shopping can make it easier to get through times like these.
"For me, personally retail therapy during this kind of time is really helpful. But even to backtrack from that a little bit, now it the perfect time to get familiar with your community and reach out to those local businesses and share their post on social media," said Demianiuk.
He wanted to thank the community, and the 'Duluth Loves Local' group for encouraging shoppers to keep small businesses in mind during these times.
