Our small local Utile outlet has always had an end-of-aisle display of British groceries and beers, things beloved of the local anglais: thick- and thin-cut marmalade, digestive biscuits, Colman’s mustard, Heinz baked beans, Marmite etc etc. In recent weeks the shelves have emptied and have not been re-stocked.
When I asked about this I got a rather evasive response about the Rentrée which didn’t make a lot of sense, and hasn’t altered the situation now the Rentrée has been accomplished. The shelves are almost empty of British fancies.
I guess it presages custom and excise problems to come. Has anyone else seen straws in the Brexit wind in their localities?
