Is the free parking offer enough to help downtown merchants? The cities merchants unfortunately, have been suffering long before COVID-19 hit last March. Road construction, lack of parking, high taxes are just to name a few reasons as to why the downtown merchant core is dying.

Business hours will be extended so merchants can stay open later to try and cash in on the after six free parking.

“We are sparing no effort to support our businesses during this period, and we will continue to listen to their need,” said Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante.

Montreal was offering free parking on the weekends already to try help stimulate business for the downtown core.
