While some Wagga businesses have been devastated by lockdown, home improvement stores have actually seen a boom in sales as more people spend time stuck indoors.
Riverina Plantation Shutters owner Shannon Scott said her shop was, if anything, busier now than before lockdown started.
"We were trying to figure out why. Maybe people had holidays cancelled and they had a surplus of funds to invest in the things they wanted to get done," Ms Scott said.
"We put it down to people spending more time at home, getting around to those things around the house they wanted to get done."
She said the situation was much the same for other shops in the window industry, with more people turning to renovation during the downtime.

Backyard gardens have also been receiving more attention, according to Bedrock Landscape Supplies owner Sue Schiller.
Ms Schiller said that they too had seen an uptick in sales during quarantine, and they have even up-scaled their business with more staff and equipment.
She said she's seen an increase in people putting vegetable gardens in their backyards, particularly young families who are keen to get their children outside in the sunshine.
She said lockdown has been a chance for families to spend quality time together in the backyard.
"Kids are so well educated about veggie gardens these days," Ms Schiller said.
"I always say I've got the best job in Wagga. The people who come in are good and you get a little glimpse into their lives. Sometimes they'll come in and show the produce they've made."
