MILWAUKEE — The Weber family has owned the UPS Store in Walker's Point for the past three years and takes pride in greeting customers with a smile while helping them with some of the services UPS provides.

"Well, the business that we normally do like Milwaukee Children's Choir isn't functioning," says the owner, Dan Weber. "But we are seeing a lot of people working from home that need small business, whether it's printing or shipping or whatever it is. We've seen a lot of that coming in the store."

Dan says they've lost half their business because of the coronavirus pandemic, but they have a lot of loyal customers who help to keep the doors open.

"I'm a local business owner as well," says Steve Jennings. "I drop things off. My wife also owns her own business, so it's important. She mails a lot. We're both working part-time from home, but it's important that we have this resource so we can send the things out that we need."
