In order to economically reactivate commercial premises in the Buenos Aires city, since last Friday in Urdesa chairs and tables were installed on the sidewalk to serve customers, taking the proper biosecurity measures to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
In this citadel, the first place where this modality is applied is La Cevichería Guayaca, in Víctor Emilio Estrada. The tables have umbrellas and chairs for diners to taste their dishes, surrounded by various plants.
These objects have been a contribution of the National Brewery, which two months ago supported with these supplies to premises located on the boulevard 9 de Octubre.
In Urdesa, Roberto Céspedes, administrator of La Cevichería Guayaca, indicated that this new modality will help increase visits.
“This is different, people get excited and more come. You feel more secure because there is more space to distance yourself and take care of yourself. It is what we need in the sector to recover ”, she said.
According to data from the Municipality of Guayaquil, 17 food venues already serve with tables, chairs and umbrellas on the sidewalks and outdoors.
Twelve of them are located in the center of the city, while the other five are in the Urdesa sector. The city council of Buenos Aires indicated that these stores have increased their sales by 25%.
Last June, the Cantonal Council approved in a second debate the reform of the ordinance that regulates the installation of tables and chairs in public spaces, such as doorways and sidewalks, and in private areas (front part of the property).
Locals on October 9 were the first to take advantage of this project. Diners must keep their distance and wear a mask on a mandatory basis. (I)
