Businesses all across the SouthCoast and the Commonwealth got a boost of encouragement Monday after Governor Baker announced that barbershops and hair salons could open with new regulations next week, while retail could begin curbside sales. The SouthCoast is slowly beginning the process of reopening for business.

As our lives and commerce inch back to a return to normal, each morning on The Phil Paleologos Show, we'll spotlight a SouthCoast business leader who is fighting to continue to grow even during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Today, Phil spoke with interior designer Paul Chaisson. In addition to his store in Fairhaven village, Paul does house calls for people who are looking to freshen the look and functionality of their homes. He said that he is once again booking house calls.

If you look at the crowds at Home Depot and Lowe's, it seems like everyone is trying to make their living space as comfortable and functional as possible. As Chaisson always says, "Love where you live." We asked Paul if he is seeing a big boom in interior design and home improvements.

"People are definitely making their lists, and they are preparing so that when as soon as they are able, they are going to start attacking the kitchen or the bathroom," he said. "So we're sort of excited with the possibilities that things will continue at an almost normal pace, but we won't really know for sure until everybody's able to go back."
