AVB’s Checklist For The ‘New Normal’

Checklist gives independent retailers assistance as they start to reopen

As states relax their shelter-in-place regulations and consumers reemerge from their homes, dealers must be ready to conduct business in the new retail environment.

To help BrandSource members safely and successfully transition their staff and customers to a post-pandemic marketplace, AVB has compiled a comprehensive Checklist for the “new normal.” This essential guide provides a compendium of suggested store policies, delivery and service procedures, merchandising and marketing advice, government links, and the best practices of fellow dealers.

Looking out for each other is supremely important in this unprecedented time, and AVB has made the checklist available for any independent retailer to use. The Checklist is available here; AVB urges you to download it, consult it, and keep it handy as we charter a new course forward.
