Monday, some St. Louis-area businesses were able to reopen. This is something Mary Sack, owner of St. Louis Muttropolitan Pet Grooming, says she should have been able to do all along. Sack says her boarding and day care services were still needed by frontline workers throughout the shutdown.
Now they are open though, Sack worries about what the summer will be like. The business is booked solid on pet grooming services, but the majority of the income comes from pet boarding. This has taken a major hit as people are canceling summer trips because of the coronavirus. Muttropolitan would normally have 60 dogs boarded over Memorial Day weekend, they currently only have 12 spots reserved. Video by Colter Peterson, firstname.lastname@example.org
