Filling an order But that in-person component isn’t more important than protecting the students and the community from the spread of COVID-19. Though the students are not in the kitchen currently as cases in Wisconsin surge, a few paid kitchen staff are baking the dozens of pies and hundreds of cookies for the holiday season. Customers can order online at justdane.org/shop and pickup items at the curbside of the kitchen, 1708 Thierer Road, on Saturdays. Revenue from the sales go to support the program and help it expand. Just Bakery has been rolling with the pandemic’s punches, modifying the program as needed to prevent the spread of the coronavirus among the students and staff. Just Bakery shut down in March at the start of the pandemic, but Glenn and the instructors quickly created an online curriculum. “By pure willingness and need, within two weeks we had it back up and running virtually,” Glenn said. Many of the skills taught at Just Bakery were easy to transition online, such as kitchen math and the science of baking. The lesson slides were uploaded and classes are taught over video calls. But at some point, to learn how to bake, you have to do the work. By June, Just Bakery had updated its kitchen schedule to accommodate more classes of smaller sizes.

 CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- For many businesses, Small Business Saturday is a lot different for stores around the world due to the coronavirus pandemic.  "In comparison to last year it's very different, but everything is different in comparison to last year," said Ellen Joy, owner of Alakazam Toys on the Downtown Mall.  Joy said business at Alakazam remained steady throughout Saturday.  Their online store has been a huge boost for their business. They launched their online store in March when the COVID-19 pandemic began.  "Less foot traffic for sure, but we have our store online now so that's making up the difference," said Joy. "We've been doing probably as many sales online as we have in store, so that's really helping us keep crowds under control and everybody is having a good time." She said parents are buying many toys, games and various activities to keep their children occupied.  "Outdoor toys have been a really big deal this year," said Joy. "I feel like with virtual schooling, people are like oh man, I got to get my kids busy. Puzzles are huge, games have been a really big deal this year and big this season as well." Thadd McQuade, co-owner of Market Street Wine, said they've received some business, but things are slower.  Market Street Wine has only been doing curbside delivery and home deliveries during the pandemic. "It's not like a normal year obviously, it's not like a normal fall," said McQuade. "These three months, October, November and December are usually are read what he said busiest months of the year and there's so many things that aren't happening now." McQuade said customers are choosing quality over quantity this year.  "People who are trying to downsize their gatherings are maybe trying to upscale their experience, so rather than buying a couple cases of wine for a bunch of people, they're buying a couple of nicer bottles of wine" said McQuade. Despite the constraints, both stores remain thankful for the community's support.  "My family's made the commitment to shop locally this year for our holiday gifts and I really appreciate the people who take that same mindset," said Joy. "Charlottesville understands how important it is to have locally owned businesses," said McQuade.
