The Minnesota Licensed Beverage Association has more than 2,000 members — including many in the Twin Cities — and its executive director says he’s heard from many of them about how tough the week has been.
“We’re seeing a range of loss currently from 25% to 75%,” Tony Chesak, executive director of the MLBA, said about their members.
“The biggest complaint has been they’re having to police a mayoral mandate when they’re already short-staffed,” Chesak said.
He added if people don’t feel comfortable dining in right now, or can’t because of the mandates, to get take-out.
“Minneapolis and St. Paul folks are struggling,” Chesak said. “Let’s keep these places above water.”
