Small businesses lifted by return of summer tourists

Heather Bise, owner of The House of Bise Bespoke, is reflected in a mirror in the "Art" bedroom, Monday, July 19, 2021, in Cleveland. Small businesses in the U.S. that depend on tourism and vacationers say business is bouncing back, as people re-book postponed trips and take advantage of loosening restrictions, a positive sign for the businesses that have struggled for more than a year. Bise started in 2019 and catered to international tourists, attracting guests from New Zealand, Botswana, Eastern Europe and elsewhere.
