2011-03-21 | St-Léonard looks for shopkeeper

At the end of 2009, a survey was conducted among the residents of the district to better identify what they needed in terms of shops nearby.

The results highlighted that the residents wanted to see specific shops open up such as: an artisan bakery, an organic grocer’s, a sandwich bar, etc.

In February, large screens summarising what was missing in the district were put up in the empty shops in order to encourage such business to move in!
