Finger Lakes Businesses Meet the Needs of Customers


There will be a time in the not-too-distant future where restrictions will slowly be lifted and hopefully businesses can start functioning normally again. The news this past week, while still dire, does shed some optimistic light upon the people in the United States, the state of New York, and the Finger Lakes Region. Life in the Finger Lakes magazine exists today because of loyal advertisers and readership. We want to be able to do what we can to help our local businesses – our advertisers – in any way possible. Please read below what our LIFL partners are doing this week to meet the needs of their customers.
