My local dry cleaner hasn’t been open for over a month now. I went one morning to drop off some shirts and found them closed during normal business hours. I went somewhere else, but I’ve kept a close eye to see if my regular guy will reopen. So far, no dice. However, I can see plenty of clothes ready to be picked up hanging in the window (thankfully they’re not mine).
What happens to those people whose stuff is trapped in there? Do they have any recourse or route to recover their clothes? I know small businesses aren’t usually rolling in cash, and a month without revenue might be enough to sink the poor guy forever. If they never actually reopen, did a whole bunch of my neighbors just lose hundreds of dollars in clothing?
