  1. If by retail you mean Amazon and Walmart then yes they’re already bounced back, or rather caught up

    If you mean like Footlocker, Champs, Pot Pouri Payless shoes perhaps Old Navy?
    Gone done bye bye

      old navy does online sales and many items are sold out or backordered. But yea I agree.

      big mistake to allow big American stores to stay open and not the small local businesses. In Nova Scotia they didn’t actually close them but they told everyone to stay home…so they only went grocery shopping and bought some clothes at Wal-Mart.

  2. loved it

  4. and of course, alcoholic beverage is deemed as “essential”, they remained opened, no question about it.

  5. Seriously, Canadians🇨🇦 can sue the Chinese government🇨🇳 for its coverups and negligence.
    –  the lawsuit is to recoup the lost money caused by the Wuhan virus.

  9. It was extremely unfair for the Canadian governments to suspend the incomes of small businesses, but not those of landlords and banks. This gross injustice needs to be rectified at once, rents and interests need to be stopped from accruing retroactively back to the start of the shut down, and until the economy is restored.

    Many retail stores might suffer because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

    It’s not that hard to understand.
