Read Northern Colorado's Business Report

The COVID-19 Pandemic and the associated disruptions in economic activity have had marked impacts on businesses across the country. In Northern Colorado, revenue data, derived from credit card transactions, reveal that small businesses experienced at least a 50 percent drop in revenues during March and April.
