So as we expected, we were very quiet today. Business slow.
I spoke to one of the ladies who works just next to us. She said the store is so quiet, so she is forced to take a holiday from tomorrow.
We may have to give one of our employees time off, too, if tomorrow is slow too.
Police was everywhere downtown: All the streets. But someone told me that there will be even more on Thursday. Doesn't feel like Toronto, it's like a different country.
