It has been all change at the village supermarket this week. Sadly first to go was the lovely paintings on the front windows of the 8 à Huit supermarket, which I did hope would be replaced by another outstanding masterpiece of the village. But no new artworks…
…and then a new name appeared.

You can just see the old 8 à Huit sign at the top right of the picture.
The supermarket stocks a good range of foodstuffs and domestic products including Bio items which I like to purchase for the vegetarian options and organic qualities.
New sign at the left of the door lists the services that the supermarket provide.
Due to corronavirud restrictions only five people are allowed into the supermarket at a time and at the entrance a table has been provided for hand sanitizer jel for use before you collect a basket or trolley. To reduce the chance of infection the handling fresh produce is off limits to shoppers so it is picked for you by Christian or Viginie. Social distancing rules are being observed and masks are recommended.
The new windows look really stylish
I must praise Christian and Virginie who arrive at the supermarket at six to half past everyday to insure that every basket, trolley, shelf etc. is cleaned before they open for customers.
Well done to you both for keeping the supermarket open and safe through this strange time that we are all living through. You two are village heroes.

Event:-don’t forget that the Daglan market is now open every Sunday morning.
