The indian summer benefits to the terraces.
At the Leffe café in the Terreaux, the terrace is full these last days thanks to an exceptional weather. After a mitigated summer, the thermometer which reached yesterday 26°C in Lyon, even reached records last week. “Last Thursday and Friday were the hottest days of the month and exceeded the previous record of September 19th 1934, when we came close to 28°C” indicates a forecaster of French Weather Service (Météo France).
The inhabitants of Lyon took advantage of the last sunbeams in the riverbanks of the Rhone, in the parks, and in the terraces before the return of the coldness foretold Friday. “But they work. So it is more at lunchtime and at cocktail hour that we notice the difference” indicates Pierre Robin, manager of the Leffe café. An establishment in which the turnover of September should be on the rise of 20%. But in spite of the good weather, the recovery is not going well for all the shopkeepers. The ones who have big terraces realized a good month of September. But generally the start of the new school year is gloomy. We feel a real decline, indicates Fabien Chalard, manager of the national union of the hotelkeepers, restaurant owners, café owners and caterers Rhone-Alpes.
