Homewood Hearing Center FS Oct 1 – Oct 31 2019

When the stay-at-home order came down from the governor’s office, Steve Buchtel, of GoodSpeed Cycles in Homewood, expected business to idle.

Instead, bike shops in Illinois were deemed essential businesses, a move Buchtel said made sense. Many people rely on bicycles for transportation, and GoodSpeed also serves customers who use wheelchairs.

“So we stayed open to serve them,” Buchtel said in an email interview. “Then we hunkered down and prepared for a brutally down year like the rest of retail. Instead, it blew up.”

Phones started ringing off the hook . . .
