Post by ceh » Sun Jun 16, 2019 12:50 pm

Does anytone know what time the shop at the entrance to RB closes at this time of year? I want to pick up some milk when we arrive next week. Otherwise, what time the small shop by Bella Napoli closes? Thanks

I was told it was 9pm.
I think Intermarche is open until 9.30pm, we have also used the small supermarket on the in road, behind Hemingway’s.

My strategy is to buy milk airside at Gatwick (Boots or WH Smith usually have some) and bring it in my hand luggage.

The supermarket on the in road behind Hemingway’s is closing. No new stock, running down current store. Owner retiring but son apparently taking over but shop will shut for several months before re-opening.

Pasted shop the other day. Someone was knocking lumps out of brickwork! Didn’t look like there was any power, lights were off.
