Several town halls in the Alpes-Maritimes now allow small non-essential businesses to sell their stocks on the sidewalk. A way to maintain their activity, despite the confinement to which they are subjected.
In the Alpes-Maritimes, elected officials have found an alternative to closing non-essential businesses. The latter have the right to set up stalls on public roads, to welcome their customers, reports France 3, Friday March 26. At Cannes, “our traders will be authorized to unpack in front of their window, in order to be able to maintain economic activity in the open-air public space“, explains Mathilde Bernard, the city’s director of territorial development.
However, wearing a mask remains compulsory and so does social distancing. Professionals, for their part, are delighted. “We take advantage, we will not wait“, rejoices Vanessa Bellone, a shopkeeper. A dozen traders have already registered to be able to unpack by the end of the week. But some still hesitate, wondering if the game is worth the candle. Yonni Betito evokes in particular the difficulty in moving all the clothes towards the entrance of his shop and the problem of fitting by customers.
