The boss of Comeos reacted to the reopening of stores announced in France by President Emmanuel Macron. “With all the stores open in the Netherlands, Germany, France and Luxembourg, Belgium is now an island of closed stores,” he says.
“The figures show that 1 in 3 Belgian families cross the border no less than nine times a year to shop. That’s a billion euros less each year, without coronavirus. If everything stays closed with us, everyone will go across the border for their Christmas shopping as well. This is not a solution from a virological point of view and it is perfectly possible to shop safely in our own country and, in this way, also give a future to our Belgian trade ”, added M . Michel.
