“This is the second time that I pass. This is the consequence of the take-away sale ”. Patrice, the municipal employee, is not idle at Place Chateaubriand, transformed into an “open-air restaurant”. He must get rid of the “bigbelly” loaded and submerged in cans and packaging boxes.
“Watch out for the gauge”
“We are waiting for our AirBnb”, comments Arnaud, biting into his cake. With Sandrine, he has just landed from Paris for four days of rest in Saint-Malo. As evidenced by the luggage left at the foot of the public bench.
From the Hector gauffrerie to the Viennese Palace, there’s an endless line of customers waiting to be served. Ditto a little higher in front of Sanchez, the glacier which reopened on Saturday. The line reaches the door of the Cabestan bookstore. Karine, the saleswoman, wants to be careful: “I have to pay attention to my gauge! “
Return of the street crier?
Does trade benefit from this influx of people? “There aren’t many people outside, but it’s not the crowd in the store,” says Judith, from the Napapijri ready-to-wear store. It must be said that we do not have much stock to finish the sales on March 2 ”. “It’s the weekend of the three zones,” informs Bernard Chaplais, the new manager of Maryland. There are even people in the rue de Dinan! “” We can feel the difference since Friday evening, says Fanfan, from Saint-Patrick. It takes off well and people are cooler ”.
Cool like some in the way they wear their mask, forgetting the nose. Cool also in the respect of certain barrier gestures. The return of the street crier, as last May, would perhaps not be superfluous.
