A Castorama store in Montpellier had to close its doors on Wednesday because it did not respect the closure of departments deemed non-essential. The sign will not be able to reopen before next Monday.
“Dear customers, for administrative reasons, the store will be closed until Saturday, November 21 inclusive. The customers of the Castorama of Saint-Clément-de-Rivière in the Hérault have fallen on this poster and on closed doors since Wednesday. On the telephone, the music on hold announces “an exceptional closure.” The store had to close its doors immediately.
The decision was imposed by the Departmental Directorate of Population Protection following a check and was announced Tuesday at the DIY sign. Failure to comply with the closure of certain departments deemed non-essential is the cause of the administrative closure, according to Midi-Free. Inspectors had already carried out an initial check and noted infringements. During their second visit, they found the same violation, hence the decision to close, according to our colleagues.
Unlike the first confinement, DIY stores can remain open during confinement and welcome their customers while respecting sanitary procedures.
While waiting for the reopening, some of the employees have been assigned to the store’s inventory.
