Store Hours and Credit Cards in France

Store Hours and Credit Cards in France

On today’s show, Annie and Elyse discuss store hours and credit cards in France: work hours, lunch-time, closing time, how things are different in big cities and in small villages. Another thing we discuss are the things that you will and will not find at a pharmacy in France, and it’s not what you’re used to in English-speaking countries! Also, how do you find a pharmacy in France? Hint: green cross, just like on the photo above. There are no pharmacies inside of French grocery stores. Some of the larger grocery stores have a “Para Pharmacie” but they only sell a limited number of products there.

Another big topic on today’s show are credit cards. Which ones work in France? And something else you may have never considered: how do you buy gas in France without a chip credit card? There’s also the intimidating store security you find in some stores in France. What’s up with that? How do you deal with store security?
