Doing business during the G20

naomi-52.jpgMy name is Naomi Ikonomou. I own a dry cleaning business in Union Station with Louis, my husband. We are here 25 years. Our son is running the business now; my husband is mostly retired. We have two daughters they also helped at the store on and off since their teenage years. We clean our clothes at the plant down the hall so we offer same-day service. Our customers are business people who work downtown. Many commute into the station, drop off clothes in the morningtime and pick them up in the evening to go home. Many of them don't want to be downtown during preparations for the summit and extra security, so we're expecting that our business will slow down a lot.
