The Board of Directors of the shopkeepers of Campina Grande has received numerous complaints from shopkeepers from various parts of the city center about the interdiction of Rua Maciel Pinheiro-One of the main trade-for the realization of an event on Saturdays of month of December. The justification of closure is to attract consumers to Christmas shopping. In general, complaints are not against the event, but rather the prohibition of a public road.
Of course we who make the CDL Campina Grande respect The opinions contrary to our positioning, but as an entity, we cannot be held responsible for the losses caused to retailers who for a long time await this season of the year to Improve sales and ensure payment of the tax charges that are mandatory to them.
Many merchants are unhappy. We are being prevented from the right to come and go. The shopping center of the city is needing attractive for consumers yes! We know the importance of a Christmas campaign to heat sales, but with the interdiction of one of the main streets the flow of people will diminish and much. On the other hand, the damage will only increase.
Once again we at CDL have clarified that, from the outset, we maintain our position contrary to the prohibition of Rua Maciel Pinheiro and ask those responsible for organizing the event that use common sense and avoid more inconvenience.
