Signs of the times
At Signs by Tomorrow, coronavirus hasn’t cut sales of signs for construction projects, although some sectors such as property management and permanent restaurant signage have begun to slow down, said Sara Mork, who last year, together with her husband, bought a business at 4707 Lien Road.
In an effort to make several businesses stand out, retailers and restaurants have ordered banners and yard signs. Schools, sports teams, and those with 2020 graduates also order yard signs to recognize seniors.
“I will not complain. We are not as normal as sales go, but we certainly are not doing bad either,” Sara Mork said.
“Some people who usually order now don’t, but there are others who order additional signs to show that they are open or that their hours have been changed, things like that. In the end, honestly, I feel very blessed. There are others in the industry we who did not do well. “
