REDDING, Calif. - Businesses are struggling to stay afloat during the coronavirus pandemic.

Redding design shop Sign Creations says, once all events started getting canceled, it became a domino effect for their business.

Owner Brandon Warlick opened the business six years ago. Warlick tells Action News Now, in one day they lost about $20,000 dollars because of numerous cancellations and holds.

“We're just trying to keep what little work we have going,” said Warlick. “All of these businesses are struggling together and we're just one of many others.”

Sign Creations is managing to stay afloat. The business is still providing support for other essential stores. Such as creating signage for mechanics and auto shops, as well as updating decals for hospitals and grocery stores vehicles.

Another mostly sunny and hot day for northern California today, quite similar to yesterday. Our weather will begin to change tomorrow, however, as a disturbance brings more clouds, cooler air, and a few showers and thunderstorms.
