To enter one of Clermont-Ferrand’s sports shops (Puy-de-Dôme), you have to queue on Sunday January 10. Since the beginning of 2021, traders have the right to open on Sundays; a breath of fresh air for the manager. “We will try to make up for what has been lost, says Lucie Beauchamp. This is not the main objective: what is done is done. This is not why we open; it really is for our customers. Today they need that “.
“We are part of a trivialization”
From Monday, January 11, stores in the city will be closed on Sunday. This is a decision of the administrative court, seized by the CGT. Because, for the union, Sunday rest must remain the rule. “We are part of a trivialization, in a generalization of Sunday opening: neither the employees, nor the small companies… No one is asking”, insists Christophe Boucheix, member of the CGT commerce.
