Queues in front of shops, alleys crowded: the re-opening of shopping centres on Monday, was expected with impatience in the eastern Townships.

The majority of the shops were open Monday, but some took a few more days to prepare for their reopening.
Various measures have been put in place to prevent the spread of the COVID-19. Habits will change, but some may be more difficult than others. One that still seems to be present, it is that of a stroll in the shopping centres. “It makes us a place to come talk a bit!” said a man met by TVA News.
