Mother’s Day business in Belmont affected by COVID-19 pandemic
Mother’s Day is coming up and there is usually a hustle and bustle along Arthur Avenue in the Bronx.
Between a decrease in expected sales and an increase in masks and distance, businesses are trying to make it work.
However, you can still bring mom her favorites, whether it's a bottle of wine or a box of cannoli from Gino's pastries.
The owner, Jerome Raguso, says that with restaurants closed, it’s a unique kind of Mother’s Day.
"It has to be more personal so we came up with a personalized Mother's Day treat,” said Raguso.
