The pandemic has brought hard times for many local business owners. In some cases, this prompts them to try and sell their business.

The BizBuySell ad aggregator usually doesn’t name the business for sale, but the descriptions for each ad provide clues.

With the pandemic causing financial hardship for many small businesses, while prompting older owners to consider retirement, the list of businesses for sale has remained relatively long since the two times we audited last year.
