Shopping: yes and no

Downtown was fairly busy after reopening on Monday, but the Journal found that Mont-Royal Street has not seen a rush on its stores – but why would that be expected? A lot of folks are necessarily being cautious about how they spend, and many of the merchants along that street deal in non-essentials.

Le Devoir found shopping streets busy.

The Journal also notes that nobody can try makeup samples any more. I don’t like saying “well duh” normally, but, well.
