SARATOGA SPRINGS - Many small businesses are finding ways to keep operations running and cash registers ringing - even though they've had to close their doors to customers and employees.

In Saratoga Springs, the owners of Impressions of Saratoga have found it pays to be creative.

Marianne Barker and Maddy Zanetti shifted business from off the street to online.

They've created porch packages, stuffed with locally-sourced food and specialty items.

You can order one and have it shipped. If you live locally, there's free delivery.

Once word got out on social media, the ladies say the orders came flying in.

There are kid-themed bags, breakfast item bags, bags for birthdays, and bags for new babies.

Learn more about how they're having other local businesses get in on the action, and how much each bag costs, by watching the video of Jacquie Slater's story.
