A Small Discovery

I always wondered why car dealerships in Winnipeg chose to be open evenings on Monday and Tuesdays and no other day. Well it turns out there is a city ordinance/bylaw that specifies that these are the only evenings dealerships can be open. Dealerships outside the perimeter are apparently exempt, although they seem to follow the same hours anyway.


Similar ordinances here in Texas ("Texas Blue Laws") prohibit car dealerships from operating over consecutive weekend days--meaning that car dealers can choose to be open on Saturday or Sunday, but not both.

That sounds like something from a Guy Maddin movie...
