Popular with foot passengers, Continent supermarket, now part of the Carrefour group, offers shoppers a chance to get away from the mad rush that often seems to overtake Carrefour at Cité Europe and Auchan. Easy to get to and use (petrol for example) it often has the best exchange rate for shoppers. There is also (unlike Cité Europe) a tobacco shop in the centre.
