No mate, it's either a warehouse or bar, I think. I couldn't find one in Albert, or in the Somme area, but had no problems finding Tabacs in Belgium. :(

Right. I see by your AVATAR that a visit to Oxfam is sorely required before winter sets in........:);)

If you want to buy a serious amount it's worth just turning left into Belgium off the ferry twenty mins up the road, or on the road to ipers at the old border post, far cheaper than France fags less than a fiver, bacca fiver a pouch , but it's no problem buying cigs if you only want the odd packet, the pmu chain of bars all have them

BRILL!! Can you pick me up ten packets please?? (y)(y)
We are going next month, and always bring a lot back for friends bought about five packs of ten for 50 euros a pack last month just on the border, in the duty free on the boat it was well over a 100 euros and they tell me, I don't buy it for myself, if you buy one pouch here it is £18 in the shops

When you see this sign that's where you buy your fags etc Sometimes its a "Bar Tabac" Did you know that Bars have to have a license, and only a certain amount were issued in --1941--By whom, and to whom ??:whistle:

You want to get over there and save some money, get a cheap three day tunnel , stop at gravelines couple of nights have some great food and drink, just follow the coast up to Belgium , fill up with bacca, come back down to cite Europe load up with wine at 2 euros a bottle, back on the train saved a fortune if you smoke and drink or if you bring some home to sell, didn't say that ;)and had a pleasant trip into the bargain, result (y)(y);)
We do that 3 or 4 times a year, love it

Adinkerke (fag alley) is good for chocolate too...! :whistle:

Some of the tabacs keep strange (to us) hours - why not take a couple of disposable plastic ciggies just in case... :smoke: Some bars have them too - you'll see the sign outside if they do... :smiley:

What I cant get to grips with is this. I can go to wherever, buy tabs and booze, pay the tax of the country concerned, bring the regulation amount back in, (for my personal consumption, of coarse), because we are a part of the fantastic EEC, open borders for goods, Blah Blah.........

BUT

I cant order three kilos of baccy on line..........:mad::mad:
I'm the same person, at the correct address, willing to undertake that this is for ME, and not being sold at next weeks market..........but no.

Get a vapour thingy from Asda for 10 quid, got me off those tars and chemicals and lowered my smoking bill to 2.50 a week, that's how long a bottle of the oil lasts me.

Mind you, I might not be the best example as I had 3 strokes within weeks of switching. :whistle2:.

Hi Mo!

You won't find cigarettes in supermarkets as the selling of them is ruled (no child under 16).

You will know where to buy them as it can be a bar or a night club or a "bureau de tabac" or even a little shop in villages WHEN you see this sign:
We call it the red carrot


http://www.point-rouge-neodia.com/c/carottes-de-tabac?opendocument&gclid=CIWc8ev6qMACFVGWtAodVDsAFA

If you decide to come and visit me we can also drive to Pas de la Casa which is just before Andorra. You can get them at about 1/2 of the French price
