2020 has been a turbulent year for small businesses, to say the least.
While COVID-19 restrictions forced some Pacific Beach businesses to close, others were able to rotate and weather the storm. PB Monthly spoke to three of them – the Gallery At Land’s End custom frame shop, the French cafe / bakery La Clochette du Coin, and the Play It Again Sports shop – about how each of them survived last year. and what lessons have been learned from experience.
At Land’s End Gallery
Gallery At Land’s End, a custom frame shop on Cass Street, has existed since 1973. Fourteen years ago, the original owners sold the shop to Thayne Yungman, who was 26 at the time. Yungman has gotten used to adapting his local business over the years, but the pandemic has taken it to a new level.
