Although it was not immediately clear how many other small businesses were affected by COVID-19, EverythingLubbock.com reached out to the the Chamber of Commerce for a reaction.
“It’s unfortunate we continue to see Lubbock restaurants or any business close their doors due to the pandemic. We understand many of the restrictions put in place to keep the public safe has caused financial detriment not only in Lubbock, but for small businesses across the nation.
