Reopening, Step 2 starts in Ontario tomorrow

We missed being able to dine outside, we missed coffee with friends, we missed the mall. But we also missed – and our uncultivated hairstyles bear witness to this – the hairdresser. From tomorrow, with Ontario entering Step 2, it will be possible to do all this and more. The long-awaited relaxation of some of the restrictions with reopening non-essential shops, albeit at 25% of capacity, bodes well after so many difficult months. (more…)

Tindahan na Paupahan sa Kalye na Pinamimilhan ng mga Mayayaman

Meron 17 na tindahan ang nagsara sa Bloor, 8 nito ay may karatulang “Prime Retail for Lease” sa mga dingding nito. Ang nabanggit na kalye ay lugar na mamahalin na tindahan katulad ng Louis Vuitton at Hermes. Mula nang tumungtong ako sa bayan na ito nung 1974, hindi ko pa maalala kung kailangan ganito karami ang nagsarang tindahan ng mga damit.

Prime Retail for Lease

On a stretch of 1.9 kms, sandwiched between Yonge Street and the Royal Ontario Museum, lies the posh district of Bloor Street where the rich buy their Louis Vuittons and Hermes. These days of the pandemic, 17 stores or boutiques are closed, 8 of which have the sign “prime retail for lease” stuck to their windows. Never in my Canadian life, since I first set foot here in 1974, has there been that many vacancies, until now. While I can’t remember which boutiques ceased operating in Bloor, one store stood out for me — the Gap which is not even high-end but had 3 levels of shopping space which I would visit when I needed new shirts or items for Christmas gifts.

The new guidelines for immunized: no masks in small groups

On the contrary, a long list of situations is listed in which those who have been vaccinated will have obvious advantages over those who have not yet done so. (more…)
