They also asked portlanders to strive to shop locally and support small businesses that, in the midst of a pandemic, are struggling to stay in the water. „We are just another victim of 2020 and the pandemic,“ Snow-McDougall said. „Our business depends on people being in the city centre and buying products from us.“ Note to readers: If you buy something on one of our affiliate links, we can earn a commission.
