Minot, ND-based Gourmet Chef has started a GoFundMe page to help offset lost funds the business has suffered as the Coronavirus outbreak has closed thousands of small businesses across the U.S.
According to the page, the funds raised would be used to help the store continue to finance payroll for its staff of 10.
“We realize that so many others are in the same boat as we are. We are doing everything we can to bring in income such as online sales, free deliveries, social media posts, etc.,” said Denise Lindbo, owner, Gourmet Chef.
The store has been open for 27 years.
