Nearly two-thirds of Americans are itching to support small businesses restricted by the pandemic

What's the first thing you want to do after the pandemic ends? A news survey found 68% of Americans can't wait to return to their favorite small businesses. The new poll asked 1,000 Americans to reflect on their time during the pandemic and found they're itching to support their local businesses that had to close temporarily. Just over half of respondents said they're looking forward to reuniting with their family and friends by hanging out at their homes. The majority of those polled are planning to safely reunite in public, at bars and movie theaters. Conducted by OnePoll on behalf of DaySmart, the survey found 56% of respondents said this past summer finally allowed them to feel like themselves for the first time in ages.
