STARKVILLE, Miss. (WTVA)— One local retail store owner says he needs clarity on whether he can reopen his business during the coronavirus pandemic.
Adam Harris owns Scrub-ville in the Cotton Crossing shopping center.
He sells scrubs, medical shoes and accessories.
Scrub-ville serves hospital workers, dentists, veterinarians and daycare workers.
Harris said since the coronavirus surfaced in the area he’s lost some business.
Governor Tate Reeves ordered all non essential businesses to close.
Harris said he falls under the retail store category and assumed that he had to close his store down.
However, Starkville Mayor Lynn Spruill said because Harris’s store serves essential workers he can open his business.
She suggested that he close the inside of his store to the public and do curbside orders only.
