“The place becomes a ghost town in a matter of two hours.”
We were lucky because we were allowed to keep the store open the whole time. We only had to adjust our opening hours. Monday through Thursday we were only open until 1 pm, so we had more time to ourselves. Until then, skiing during the week was unimaginable for us. It was pure luxury. We did a lot with the children and were able to enjoy nature in peace. During the day, the lockdown wasn't noticeable either, but as soon as it got dark, it become spooky. At night the place became a ghost town: empty streets, no buses, silence.
In the shop, the empty guest room turned into a second living room. Initially, we did takeaway, but that didn't work out too well. Things that did sell well were jarred dishes like veal cream goulash, venison stew, or lights. Customers just had to warm them up at home. These sold like hot cakes. What we are really looking forward to is seeing all the familiar faces again. All those people can't wait to come back to Lech.
