Don’t expect to find a large range of British or European goods and brands in French supermarkets. In one small corner shop in the UK, I could buy cheeses from 11 different countries. In France 95% of the produce is French. You will have to search hard for a piece of Cheddar or a Californian wine. Jordan’s cereals seem to have found a niche. Don’t expect to find fruits and vegetables out of season. ‘Cash back’ doesn’t exist, and woe betide you if you dare to buy 11 items and take them through a ‘10 item only’ till. Keep your till receipt and learn to argue until you get receive a refund on faulty goods.
