Petersburg businesses face worker shortage
July 15, 2021
Businesses across Petersburg are suffering due to the nationwide worker shortage according to local businesses.
"If you look, people are trying to hire everywhere," Jim Floyd, the general manager and CEO at Hammer & Wikan Inc., said.
Hammer & Wikan stores across town have been affected according to Floyd. The grocery store has limited hours, the deli has limited service, and the hardware store is short-handed but continues to do normal business hours. "The convenience store has to be closed temporarily until we can hire a new manager and get a crew for that," Floyd said.
