I think it's valuable to read these reports because it can lead to creative new ideas about how to address the challenges of our own businesses. And because it reminds us we're not alone in the struggle.

I saw this article in the Times later today about artists showing in retail shops when galleries close. It may not be ideal, but it is innovative!
