    Small business digital development : Definitely an idea that is worth the study. While we were closed then reopening during the pandemic we offered free local delivery (usually me or a family member). Typically same day not to be outdone by Amazon. Having a centralized process for many other businesses could be the next really cool Lakewood thing that sets us apart from the rest. Love to help study it...GG

    Small business digital development : As an owner of 2 small business in lakewood, both food oriented, we are asked about delivery quite frequently.

    Neither of my businesses have a large enough staff to handle delivery well, especially when it's busy. Especially at Fear's. I (at Fear's) have attempted to utilize 4 of the national delivery services and the fees are astronomical for the business, not to mention orders stolen by drivers.

    I think a local service would be a wonderful addition to the community, especially with so many small businesses. It would potentially open a larger customer base for us as well, especially during a pandemic.

    Thank you.
