It is now official. From Monday, the health pass will be checked at the entrances to nine shopping centers and department stores in Val-de-Marne, all of which have an area of over 20,000 m². If Sophie Thibault had not imposed the measure until now, Saturday afternoon the prefect of the department decided to apply the new government directives, while in Val-de-Marne the incidence rate exceeds 200 new positive cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 inhabitants. Some neighboring departments made the same decision this weekend.
Créteil Soleil is not on this list, this 136,000 m² space being crossed by up to 15,000 travelers on metro line 8 and surrounding buses. One of its many doors also gives access to the nearest vaccination center. On the other hand, the health pass will be checked at the entrances to the Aushopping (formerly Perival) shopping center in Fontenay-sous-Bois, the Vache Noire in Arcueil, Okabé in the Kremlin-Bicêtre, Quai d’Ivry in Ivry-sur-Seine, Bercy 2 in Charenton-le-Pont, Pince Vent in Ormesson / Chennevières-sur-Marne, but also in front of those of the Ikea stores in Villiers-sur-Marne and Thiais. The Belle Epine shopping center is no exception.
“It’s going to be a pretty mess! “
“It’s going to be a pretty mess! “, Predicts Carole, 42, a regular at Belle Epine who came this Saturday to do some shopping with her daughters. Vaccinated because she “had no choice”, this liberal nurse, echoing here events organized across France for several Saturdays, believes that the sanitary pass is above all put in place “to get rid of us”. Stéphanie is not there in her reflections on the health situation and the constraints it implies. “I will not have my second dose of vaccine until September 2, I must quickly go back inside if I understood correctly”, ironically this inhabitant of Antony (Hauts-de-Seine), crossed at the one of the Belle Epine releases.
Behind the counters of stores, the announcement of the measure is variously appreciated. “It’s already been very calm for a few days and the arrival of the health pass will still affect the crowds, predicts Bastien, manager of the Micromania store. Many customers call us to find out if the sanitary pass will be checked. I will finally be able to answer them. This other trader looks grim. He “did not have time” to be vaccinated. “How am I going to do to work? They will not let me in ?, he wonders. I’m going to be stopped by my doctor for several weeks, that’s what will happen. “
Security guards in the blur
Meanwhile, security guards will potentially have a lot to do, especially if the Augustans return in numbers. “We will probably have to close the doors, otherwise it will be complicated, judges one of them. Everything will depend on the numbers that we will have on Monday. For the moment, nothing is really defined. “
In Créteil Soleil, the security guards are also blowing their breath, but with satisfaction. They know the difficulty of asking customers, sometimes aggressive, to present their health pass. This has been the case in the catering section of the center since last Monday. “It’s going to be hot for colleagues from other centers,” sympathizes one of these costumed men equipped with an earpiece, vigilant in the proper wearing of the mask. It remains mandatory in all shopping centers, whether the health pass applies or not.
Behind his, we can guess the satisfaction but also the measure of Diana, stationed at the San Marina store in Créteil Soleil. “This is good news for us who thought it was going to fall on us, much less for the colleagues of Belle Epine”, regrets this professional. She hopes that her customers without a sanitary pass will quickly get up to speed and will not forbid themselves a passage through Créteil Soleil. Because, here too, since the control of the health pass is mentioned, “the turnover has taken a hit, it is very very empty at the moment”, she underlines. “We do not know if the customers feared that they would be asked for the pass or if they all went on vacation, but it’s deserted,” laments a jewelry saleswoman.
“I will order everything on the Net”
Some regular customers of shopping centers will review their habits: “It’s quite simple, I will no longer be able to come to certain centers since I do not want to be vaccinated, regrets Amel, who came from the 12th arrondissement of Paris in order to dress for the returned her three children. All it’s going to do is I’ll order everything from the Net. “” I admit that even being vaccinated, I will have less desire to come when we are asked for the pass, confides Sonia, from Villeneuve-Saint-Georges. Shopping must remain fun, I don’t want to queue or stress myself because of the new measures! “
Vaccinated, “in a responsible person aware of the epidemic situation “, He specifies, Adrien is meanwhile not animated by any stress, quite the contrary:” It’s perfect for people like me who do not like crowds in shopping centers, smiles this resident of Créteil. I won’t go backwards next time. “
