Supermarket eating into bakers business

The Guardian: French bakers in pain over cut-price supermarket baguettes.

Let’s be honest if your local baker was any good you wouldn’t be getting your bread in Leclerc.

Ours is awful. On a Tuesday when they close, the local supermarket gets different bread in. Seems to sell quite well that day.

My god you poor thing, if your boulangerie is not very good, my advice to you is move :+1:

Hardly practical for the majority of people.

Ultimately, do it well, and they will come - I can think of a couple of local boulangerie’s that always have lines, and others where you barely see a person in, with a couple of croissant, maybe a couple of pain au raisin, few baguettes on display. God knows how they survive, but always reminds me that people normally vote with their feet!

Agreed. There are boulangeries / patisseries around here which are always busy. Admittedly fewer than there were but some of them were pretty awful and deserved to go.

Darwinism :grin:
