Farmington’s small business scene more optimistic about 'Red to Green' reopening plan
1 Dec 2020
FARMINGTON — Farmington’s small business scene took on a more optimistic tone about the immediate future under New Mexico’s “Red to Green” reopening plan, which allows shops to start reopening under strict occupancy limits.
“To be able to interact with my customers, or any new customers, in person… it makes a huge difference,” said Matt Buell, owner of Buell’s Fish Hooks in Farmington.
