It feels as though life was put on pause for the past few months. And now, slowly but surely, Montreal is starting to reopen again right before our eyes. For those of you who love going to a mall and getting some shopping done, you're going to be thrilled to know that Quebec malls are opening their doors again as of Friday, June 19. And yes, that includes the Eaton Centre.\nMTL Blog spoke with Katherine Roux Groleau, the Director of Public Affairs and Stakeholder Relations at Ivanhoe Cambridge, which owns the Eaton Centre, and she let us know what changes shoppers should expect when the doors reopen.\nTo start, masks and gloves will be worn by all employees at all times.\nAlthough masks are not being made mandatory for shoppers, they're highly recommended.\nAnd when it comes to trying on clothing, each store will have its own policy. So, you'll have to ask everywhere you go.\nShoppers should expect to see plexiglass at all registers to ensure the safety of both themselves and the store employees.\nThere will be a limited amount of people allowed in each store to maintain social distancing.\nView this post on Instagram Empty shopping mall. #zombieapocalypse or COVID?

This will help reduce the chance of clients getting too close to one another.\nThe Eaton Centre will also have added security guards to help remind people of the protocols and guidelines implemented by the Government of Quebec that must be followed.\nRoux Groleau additionally said that there will be "increased housekeeping in common areas, which includes all high traffic areas such as door handles, elevator buttons, and railings."\nSo, things will be cleaner than ever before. Happy shopping!
