Since the publication of the last report, our team worked to refine and update information about the development pipeline and improve the way we collect information about the storefront business community. The timing of the Q2 2020 report complicates the data on storefront businesses as dozens of storefronts remain boarded up – a remnant of the social activism, which was undoubtedly a headline from the second quarter (Q2). In some cases, the businesses behind the boards have limited ability to open, an effect of the public health orders. For others, businesses may have closed permanently due to the economic fallout from the pandemic or from severe looting. In each one of these cases, we are dismayed to see an entrepreneur and its team unable to survive these challenging times.
