Very good. Get all your food shopping from here before you get back. Lots of cheeses, wines and things we just don't have in the uk

“Carrefour de Lille - A great french shopping experience !!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 30, 2012

When i go to Lille for the day, Carrefour is visited on my way back to Lille Europe Station to catch the Eurostar back to London.
Armed with a shopping list of all my favourite things i scour the Ailes at a sedate pace,
Pates, Chacuterie, Cheeses, and buiscuits all french are dropped into my trolley.
If you visit the Fish counter you will see a tank with live crabs!! on this visit there were Three specimins trying to conceal themselves from being sold. I WONDER WHAT HEALTH & SAFETY back in the UK would say about that.
On the second floor you can purchase, a new TV, bedding, paint, just about everything a home could ever need.
This branch of Carrefour may not win any awards for appearence, but it does everything you expect of it.

“Not a good representation of the very nice Carrefour brand of hypermarket shops.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2011

We have shopped at Carrefour hypermarkets throughout France and Spain for years. Generally they are clean and pleasant shopping experiences very like Costco in the U.S. This location was a complete disappointment. Store was poorly lit, dark and unwelcoming. Merchandise was ugly and cheaply made, staff was sullen and unhelpful even though we addressed them in fluent French. I suspect they do not like working there any more than we liked shopping there.

“Great variety of French items all under one roof.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2011

Stopped by today on a whim while we driving from Dunkerque to Kortrick. This is definitely NOT a boutique or specialty store but it is a great place to see and find a large variety of French foods, toiletries, clothing & household items. It was like a Super Wal-Mart store, maybe a bit nicer. If you're looking for a charming French store, this is not the place. If you're looking for variety and convenience, then go
for an interesting browse!

“It's a hypermarket”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2006

Carrefour isn't a speciality shop - it's a gigantic supermarket chain. The Lille branch does sell some local produce but far better stuff is available in the smaller shops in the old town.
