When we go to visit our daughter Louise in the North of Spain we always cross the border into France to go to the commercial centre at Bayonne and the large Carrefour supermarket. We have found English substitutes for many of the groceries we used to buy there but there are still things that are hard to get in the UK – a much larger range of Tefal bakeware for example.

I was surprised at this large display of competitive pricing in Carrefour. With Lidl scoring so highly in customer surveys for both price and quality  regular supermarkets may be feeling the pinch in these hard times.
