In the event of an imminent blackout this winter, we could “close shops at certain times”, assured this Monday, July 25, the President of the Strategic Committee of E. Leclerc shops, Michel-Édouard Leclerc, on France Info.

“We may close shops at certain times,” Michel-Édouard Leclerc said on France Info’s airwaves on Monday morning about the possible problems related to peaks in energy consumption in France next winter. “We will not have a mood, we are fighting for our country,” said the leader.

“For this winter, with the risk of blackouts, it would not be honest to ask the consumer to be sober if we ourselves are not exemplary,” he had previously suspended. “We will make sure that the doors of the refrigerators are closed, we will not run the bread ovens at peak times, these will be very concrete measures”, he explained, recalling that this will also be done in the interests of the dealers, “because the electricity bill is paid by us”.
