    I still chuckle when I see recent till receipts from eg Auchan, Cora and Carrefour, with the total in Euros and French Francs.

    Their mature customers still like to see how much it is in "real money" (or just in case they have some reason to rethink the Euro?) :)

    I find it amusing too, but realistically why would the stores pay to have their till systems reprogrammed to remove it?

    Looking at my receipts from last Friday (Auchan Saint Omer) and Tueday (Auchan Bolougne). No mention francs anywhere. Maybe they have started to move forward.

    I have:
    Cora Saint Jouan, Sept 7, €19.09 FRF 125.22
    Carrefour St Malo, Sept 14, €46.45 FRF 304.69
    Auchan Calais, Sept 21, €23.63 FRF 155

    E. Leclerc also display both currencies on lots of goods in store.

    It seems they're not so sure the Euro IS forward. So, let's just keep the dies for the good old FFR, just in case we decide to wise up and have those wonderful colourful banknotes back again.

    All countries were allowed 2 years with dual pricing at the outset of the Euro introduction. You still get pesetas /euros on some till receipts here even now. Technically it is illegal.
