Colorado’s Unprofitable Reopenings are Encouraging
In my interview with Jamie Repenning, President of Colorado-based Floyd’s 99 Barbershop, I was struck by the fact that even as Colorado businesses reopen, constraints in the number of customers that can be in the shops at a time mean that businesses will reopen knowing that they’ll be losing money. In fact, many were losing LESS while closed than they will reopened.
But, I haven’t heard loud complaining. I think that says great things about Colorado business and Colorado entrepreneurs: that putting their staff to work serving customers is the priority.
That’s gratifying to me. Sure, maybe your do-it-yourself haircut wasn’t as bad as you thought it would be. Still, it’s time to reward the commitment of our Colorado businesses by going back to them and leaving big tips.
