Cootamundra Newsagency in Wallendoon Street is one business that hasn't had a Covid-19 downturn.
If anything, business is slightly up on pre-virus days.
Shop assistant Judy Scott explained a lot of people have been coming in to buy books and puzzles (jigsaws are especially popular) to do something enjoyable at home.
"Another popular line has been wipe-clean schoolbooks for kids, where they can learn alphabet or times tables and do the answers several times over," Ms Scott said.
"The demand for newspapers is holding up, and it's also a convenience store so people buy their milk there as well.
"Some people come in every day, but keep their distance following footprints on the floor."
The colouring-in promotion in the weeks leading up to Easter proved popular, although the virus resulted in some kids not bringing in their entries.
There were 21 entries in the 4-7 age group, won by Charlotte Gay, and 12 entries in the 812 age group, won by Sophie Roberts.
The girls' entries have now been sent to Sydney where they'll compete in a national competition sponsored by Newspower and Texta.
