This causes displeasure among many specialist dealers.

Munich

- The strict

Corona *

lockdown

has been in place in Bavaria for a little over a month

.

Numerous businesses and service providers are affected.

Your shop doors will remain closed - initially until February 14th.

An

extension of the measures

cannot be ruled out.

In these difficult times for the entrepreneurs, a decision by the

Ministry

of

Health

creates a

great lack of understanding.

Corona: Sales ban for supermarkets and drug stores lifted

Up until now it was the case in Bavarian

supermarkets

and

drugstores

that only goods for daily consumption were allowed to be offered there.

The larger shops in particular had to cordon off their areas with toys or household goods, for example.

These could not be sold.

The

Augsburg administrative court

now partially overturned these sales bans, which led to the city of Kempten

turning

to the

Ministry of Health

.

The authorities were asked to

improve

their

sales ban rule

.

Then the bang.

On Wednesday (January 27), the

Ministry of Health

lifted

the

sales ban

completely.

This means that supermarkets and drugstores can offer all their goods again.

So you can look forward to shops that focus on goods that are intended for daily needs.

Thus,

specialist retailers

such as toy shops or perfumeries

look

into the tube.

A toy retailer from Aichach calls the decision a "clear distortion of

competition

" (see video above).

He only has the option of selling his goods via Click & Collect *, i.e. ordering online and picking them up on site.

However, his sales have

decreased

by 70 percent

since the tightened

Corona *

lockdown

.

Corona: Bavaria's hairdressers are not allowed to make house calls

Even

Bavaria hairdressers

get a damper missed.

They also had to close shortly before Christmas and have been doomed to do nothing ever since.

In Bremen, on the other hand, her colleagues have found a loophole in the

Corona *

regulation there

.

They are allowed

to make

house calls

.

Hairdressers must also remain closed there.

However, handicrafts and services are

permitted provided that

hygiene measures are

observed.

However, this loophole does not exist in Bavaria.

The rule is formulated much more strictly in the Free State: "Services for which physical proximity to the customer is essential, such as hairdressers, cosmetic studios, massage practices, tattoo studios or similar businesses are prohibited." And there is no change in sight.

For weeks, the

hairdresser's guild

has been appealing

to the

state government

to reopen the shops.

State guild master Christian Kaiser said: “We need a perspective for our salons.” But so far the demands have not been heard.
