Carouge shop owners say rules are unfair

National News // Nov. 16, 2020

Shop owners in Carouge say the current covid rules are unfair on them and if they can’t open to benefit from pre-Christmas sales, then many will be forced to close and will never reopen.

The small town next to Geneva has more independently run shops than many other areas.

The local trader’s association says shops normally double their annual turnover in November and then triple it in December.

They’re asking why the shopping centres elsewhere in the canton can be open – although some shops may be closed – when whole streets can’t have businesses trading.

One jeweler in the town says all the traders are self-employed and want take all the necessary safety measures in their own interests as well as their customers.
