C&C Cafe - Castle Rock, CO

Last week, CRCO caught up with a few CRCO – Local Business Alliance members to see how they were doing. Many reported slow-downs but none have anticipated what they’ve seen in recent days.

One local restaurant owner said their business was down 45%.

“It’s really hard. I don’t know how long we can hold out. Right now, I’m working a lot of shifts myself to combat labor cost,” said April Arellano of C&C Cafe in Castle Rock.

The Corona Virus is only temporary, but the long-lasting effect on the small business community is permanent.

Here are a few ways you can still support local businesses during this difficult time.

  1. Buy gift cards for future use
  2. Online ordering/delivery
  3. Curbside Pickup
