We're all adjusting to the new normal--working from home, moving to digital platforms, providing goods and services on a virtual or delivery basis. That change has been especially difficult for many of Buffalo's businesses, but in true WNY spirit, Buffalo has remained open for business.

In that light, we wanted to shine a light on how some of our WNY community business leaders are doing to keep Buffalo working. Each of them brings their own unique insight on what challenges their industry is facing during the era of social distancing. Each day Clay Moden and Dave Fields will speak with a different business leader to get a boots-on-the-ground look at how Buffalo is staying open for business.

Today Dave Fields spoke with Kevin O'Brien of Fichte Endl & Elmer Eyecare about their renewed areas of focus and what they can offer WNY now that our region is reopening for the summer. You can call to schedule an appointment at 1-800-309-2020.
