Many Montreal retailers suffering after reopening

At the M.H. Grover and Sons clothing store in Verdun that opened in 1945, business is down 50 to 60 per cent since its reopening.

“You can’t sell clothes if there are no weddings, no one is going to work, no parties, no one can go out. No nothing,” said owner Kenny Grover, grandson of the founders.
