Sophia Antipolis - How to shop
Department stores are in the suburbs of Nice, Antibes and Cannes and provide plenty of parking space. If you prefer to do your shopping from home, you can order from websites or use the mail-order (vente par correspondance). You can buy mail-order catalogues at the bookshop.
The dates of the sales periods are published in "Nice Matin".
Visiting a provencal market is an event! You can go to one of the permanent markets in Valbonne, Antibes and Nice. On the market you will find food, clothes, flowers and local products. Prices are not less expensive than in normal stores, but you get the chance to meet the local people, which allows you to speak French and enjoy the special flair!
