Gov. Charlie Baker has extended the shutdown of non-essential businesses to May 18. That means many small businesses will have to wait at least two additional weeks to open their doors.

Among the small business owners affected by the shutdown are Charlotte Walsh, who owns the Charles River Running shoe store in Norwood, and Kate Cherdanzeva, who runs a Cambridge dog walking service called Doggie Trail.

They spoke with WBUR's All Things Considered about how they’re coping with the lost business due to the shutdown.

This segment aired on April 28, 2020.
