After a relatively dry and cold fall, winter, with all its bright white glory, finally hit right on the day of and days following the official winter solstice of December 21. Suddenly a white Christmas was upon us. Hopefully this was one step to allowing for outdoor winter activities like skiing, skating, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling where it was allowed and safe to do so.
Reports from the field indicate that most of the green profession was able to continue robust sales through most of the fall. With little major change related to COVID anticipated before the fall of 2021, survey results and industry experts expect similar sales volumes for the green profession for 2021. Presumably everyone will be better prepared for 2021 with regard to online sales, curbside pick-up, delivery, and in-store sales, either individually or combined. That said, those same experts are predicating that supply chain issues may present the greatest challenge to meeting customer needs in 2021.
