    I just have to think that if you have that list of customers, and you have a skill set, there's probably another way to apply it that normally wouldn't be worth the trouble, but maybe today it is. That's not a knock or anything... Just trying to think outside the box.
    Have tried, most arenít making enough revenue to pay employees, and restock, much less paying outside help. As far as buying good used, I am, until cash reserves run out, which with no incoming is going to happen sooner, rather than later.

    Man... I'd for sure crack your phone book and call those loyal customers and let them know just how much you appreciate their business and how available you are for anything they need right about now. You never know... Some of those guys might need to set their rigs up as temporary housing for loved ones and might have a "check up" on their minds anyhow. Go over the plumbing, wheel bearings, lights, whatever. Run a spring special?

    Again, just thoughts. Nobody might want to buy a new one, but maybe service can float you a little more time?

    Got any freezers? I'd bet you could sell those right quick around here right about now... Might even be able to rent out some of the used fridges to panic food buyers. Risky business, but, business?

    Real Estate Broker. 98% of my business is from foreclosures. We had a slowdown a little over a year ago and it started picking up again. Things have been pretty steady but no where near our top of a few years ago. Foreclosures and evictions are on hold with current cash for keys going forward. We have been fortunate and able to set some money aside. We are looking to donate a small amount of money to help someone in our community through this tough time. We are hoping other small businesses and self employed are able to do the same

    As the name may imply, I dig ditches. More specifically, I install drain tile in farm fields and have done this for 20 years now, building the business from scratch with some ancient equipment and not really knowing what I was doing, but nobody told me I couldnít.
    I also farm with my brother and son.
    My business is good and I am blessed. My heart breaks for the people who will lose so much in this situation. I will look for ways to bless others.
    I have heard there are loans available but it doesnít seem right to have to do that, even if it was possible to make the payback.

    family business we are a small machine shop, oldest in Indiana. We have ground to a halt. Hoping that next week our critical staff can get in to start cutting chips, but if they restrict us much more we may be done for.

    Sorry to hear this super bee. Wishing you the best of luck. We bought our current camper off you a few years ago, and the wife and I were talking about paying a visit to upgrade before the world turned upside down. Hope things work out. ...

    I have owned a Forest River RV dealership in Fort Wayne for 12 years. Last year was a really bad year in the RV industry and I blew through a lot of savings to save the business. If this situation last too long I will not have a choice but to close. February was crazy busy and even up until 10 days ago I was moving units as fast as they were coming in then it was like someone turn off the spigot. The other issue I am having is my finance companies who I use so I can purchase units have cut us off, not just us, but all dealers nation wide. I have pretty much come to the realization I will be losing the business and while it stinks there is nothing I can do.

    I hope you are fairing better.

    I just googled rv dealers that sell Forest River RVs in Ft. Wayne and came up with this, but I don't know if this is Super Bee's place or not...
