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.

It’s Going to Set Us Up Very Nicely for Retirement

You’ve worked hard all your life. And if you’re like most jewelers contemplating retirement, you’re hoping that your going-out-of-business sale will add to your nest egg — with minimal complications. That’s exactly what Doug and Jacki Friedrich, fourth-generation owners of Friedrich Jewelers Inc., of Vernon, Conn., experienced when they selected Wilkerson to run their sale. “Jewelers who are contemplating a sale should go with Wilkerson because of their experience,” says Doug. And with financial goals “exceeding expectations,” the couple can now focus on enjoying the next chapter of their lives. “It’s going to set us up very nicely for retirement,” says Jacki. “The money’s coming in and we have no complaints. It’s been wonderful.”
