Covid-19 has badly affected economy, all over the world. I was planning to get into retail business in April this year but couldn’t do so due to lockdown. Things are looking brighter now but I am not sure if this is a good time to start a business as things are still not back to normal.
If I were you, I would wait for some sometime before starting a new venture. You may currently have to pay lower rent but the sales would be low as well due to economic slowdown and lesser people going out to purchase stuff.
