THE JOURNAL FILE PHOTO
As life slowly returns to normal, the Boutique-Friperie L’Actuel issued a communiqué May 25 to say it is preparing to welcome customers at its popular friperie on Adèle Street in Vaudreuil-Dorion beginning Wednesday, June 3. However, as far as donating items, it will still be necessary to wait.
The Boutique-Friperie L’Actuel will resume its activities with reduced opening hours and numerous security measures. It will be open, initially, from Wednesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Measures in place
When entering the store, customers will be asked to answer questions. Anyone with flu symptoms or awaiting COVID-19 results will be asked to vacate the premises. In addition, only one person per family will be allowed in the store.
A maximum of five customers at a time, mandatory hand washing at the entrance, closed fitting rooms and signage for movement in the aisles will allow shopping that meets health and safety standards. Of course, all customers will be asked to respect the two meters distance between themselves and other customers when they are traveling in the aisles as well as when waiting at the checkout.
Everything that will be in the thrift store at the time of the opening has been there since March 18, the temporary closure. When sorting activities resume, a period of a minimum four days will separate the sorting of clothing or objects from the time they are put on sale at the Boutique-Friperie in order to minimize the risks. Furthermore, L’Actuel will not resume donations at this time since there are currently enough of them waiting to be sorted.
The Boutique-Friperie allows many citizens to find clothes, home essentials, books, games and toys at low cost, but also to buy in an ecological way. In addition to encouraging local purchases, shopping at L’Actuel will help the organization maintain its essential services, in particular food baskets and help for families with new infants as requests for both have experienced a sharp increase.
