Ostra Toernell says he's glad for his part that the economy has stayed open. He says the club staff is kind of like a family. And even though soap bar had to lay off ten people it was still able to keep most of its core staff. Oscar says that with the smaller crowds. The club is not making much money but it is scraping by along with a lot of other businesses in Sweden. We might be be on the right path other note basically Isabel Limbo today.
