Simcha Minkowitz, owner of Amor Fine Jewelry in Brooklyn, sees big-box stores doing brisk business in her region, and she’s having trouble understanding why she has to remain closed.

She recently posted a video to social media pleading the case for small businesses to be allowed to reopen, and it’s since gone viral, CBS New York reports.

She paused her business about eight weeks ago when Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered restrictions to slow the spread of  COVID-19. She believes she could reopen her small store safely.

“I think I’d be able to sanitize my space better than a large Target, let’s say, or a large Costco,” CBS New York quoted her saying.

When Liquidation Is the Best Option, This Legendary Jeweler Chose Wilkerson

George Koueiter & Sons Jewelers, a 65-year old jewelry institution in Grosse Pointe, MI, had always been a mainstay in this suburban Detroit community. But when owners George and Paul Koueiter were ready to retire, they made the decision to close rather than sell. “We decided our best option to do the liquidation sale was Wilkerson,” says Paul Koueiter. The results, says George Koueiter, exceeded expectations and the process was easy. “Wilkerson just kept us in mind,” says George. “They never did anything without asking and whatever they asked us to do was just spot on.”
