The 2012 clearance day on July 7th clear for take off

For its 2012 edition, the clearance day of Angers could focus on its very purpose : to allow passers-by to do good deals. After several years of breathlessness then two difficult years due to the works on the tramway line, and even a cancellation in 2010, the clearance day is taking off again. While 300 retailers were in the streets of down town last year, they will be 400 on July 7th along 10 kms. No animation for children have been planned this year, the event want to fulfill the aim of the retailers and customers : to do business.

The 2011 Angers clearance day
The clearance day will take place from 8.00 am to 7.00 pm. The traffic in down town will be stopped from 7.00 am to 9.00 pm and the Ralliement parking lot will be closed so the best way to go there could be the walk or the tram.

The core of Angers "needs federative events to strenghten its position of first commercial center of the city", points out Jacques Motteau who launched a fex days ago an idea which infuriated some store owners (a tax enforceable to retailers whose customers stay on the pavement the time of a purchase...). Is a new tax auspicious to the attractiveness pf a sector Mr Motteau is in charge?
