We like shopping at Auchan, so we are not traveling out of our way.
We also like to eat in the brassiere Bleriot, but it seems they are having problems. we thought the car park at Auchan was quite, and at 13.00 we were only 1 of 3 parties in the Brassiere.( all English)
It seems they are thinking the British are staying away because of the immigrant problem, but I do not think this is the case, It seems to me the French are staying away for some reason any idea's anybody?
The French economy is in pretty dire straits, apparently, when you talk to a working French person. They are somewhat despairing about the effects of recent political 'solutions' to the economic problems, which seem to be making things far worse. French people are keeping their money in their pockets (or going back to the old days, of under the mattress) and so are not spending money shopping (or eating) in Auchan.
