Week 9 of Shelter in Place – Back to Normal


We finished ninth week of shelter in place with steady phone calls and solid numbers. Technically speaking, San Francisco Bay Area is only in stage 2 of reopening, but auto repair is back in demand again.

Traffic jams are back on some of the freeways, and repair shops are busy. Marketing budgets are almost back to normal, with leading shops increasing marketing and advertising by 10%-20% over comparable time last year – while most shops are still shell shocked, we are taking market share.
