Save 40 – 70% on wine in Calais. There are even greater savings when you consider how little of the United Kingdom price you pay for a bottle of wine actually goes on the wine itself.
Despite tax increases and a poor exchange rate, there are still big savings to be made when shopping in Calais
Three reasons for a daytrip; 1 – Save money, 2 – much better range of products in French supermarkets (fewer own brands), 3 – Quality is often better and healthier, and there are more local products available.
