There is no doubt that the COVID-19 pandemic has altered the way we approach life; social distancing, fervent hand-washing, and wearing protective masks in public have become the new normal. But what about the impact it has had on the way we do business?

Some businesses have been forced to shut down during the Stay-At-Home orders in Colorado, while others have been deemed essential. In both cases, businesses have had to shift how they provide goods and services to their clients. For example, countless Westminster restaurants have gone to curbside pickup and delivery as their new business model. We asked other Westminster businesses to share how they have adjusted their day-to-day operations in the time of coronavirus.

Stephanie Rawson, Certified Fitness Trainer

“I’m still programming and helping clients stay healthy as possible by exercising and moving their bodies with whatever equipment they have at home.  I send it out by email and text, and ask for snippets of their exercises back for form check and for accountability.  I also post my class workout on Facebook and Instagram, every Sunday — free for everyone.”

Jessi Burg, Pears to Perennials Landscaping Company

“I own and operate Pears to Perennials, Inc., a landscaping company based in Westminster. Additional services we are offering for the duration of the Colorado Stay-at-Home order include:

  • Video and on-site consulting services for clients who are starting or managing their own gardens and would like assistance
  • Discounted garden designs for homeowners who would like to do their own installation
  • Photo and video-based plant identification services

Ed Beery, InTechgrity Automotive Excellence

“We are still open with revised procedures and hours. We are taking appointments and have altered our key handling and implemented clean protocols for vehicle door handles, steering wheels, gear shifters and keys. We will get through this.”

Marilyn Johnson, Keller Williams Preferred Realty

“As a realtor, I am still open for business. To reduce the spread of Covid-19, I am conducting business online as much as possible.  Showings are mostly virtual, with limited in-house visits as needed.  Closings are done curbside, thanks to the ingenuity of our title companies.  Real estate looks different, but is still open.”

Mike Krieger, Intelligent Office-Westminster

“We are answering phones for companies at no cost (up to 200 calls per month) and with no obligation.  It is a great solution for anyone that may have had to furlough or lay off a receptionist, or if they don’t want to answer phones with kids in the background. We can also receive packages and mail, and can also scan or forward mail, so that you don’t have to venture out.”

 Dave Vanchina, Signs By Tomorrow

“In addition to all of our other services, Signs By Tomorrow will manufacture, distribute, and manage print communication including educational materials related to social distancing and COVID-19 for a variety of businesses deemed essential.”
