A quick English shopping day out solution is to take a trip to Jersey.  Although there are many English items on sale in France in the supermarkets now  the supply is limited and prices high . 

The UK chains are well rpresented in the town of St. Helier and include  Marks and Spencer, Boots the Chemist,  BHS, Dorothy Perkins, Burtons, Evans, Accesorize, Claire Accessories, B&Q, Mothercare, Next, Monsoon, Crabtree & Evelyn, The Body Shop, Molten Brown, Vision Express, Specsavers etc. are strongly represented.

As regards Opticians there are many local firms as well as the UK Chains.  I am told that many expats have been going over to Jersey for eye tests and to purchase glasses and contact lenses because of the waiting list for such tests in France. 

The department stores - De Gruchy and Voisin in King Street have plenty of UK Concessions such as Laura Ashley, Burberry, Timberland, Wallis etc.

Jersey supermarkets include Checkers Safeway and Iceland and the Channel Islands Co-Operative as well as mini markets

St. Helier  Stores include Le Gallais, Brenann Langlois, Co-operative Homemaker, The Furnishing Centre, Scope Furnishing

The island is VAT free but there is a goods and service tax  of 5%.   Of course the ferries to the island sell duty free drinks, cigarettes and perfumes so your trip is well worth making!
