Information on shopping for sportswear and sport shops in Calais, France – Day-tripper.net, the web magazine which saves you money when crossing the channel to Calais, to buy wine, beer, spirits and food, travelling by ferry or Eurotunnel.
It's always best to know the price of what you are looking for in the United Kingdom Before buying sportswear in France. Some things are definitely cheaper (ski wear and equipment often is), and items are often available in France, when there are problems finding them in the United Kingdom.
CREDIT CARDS – we suggest you ring your credit card company before shopping in France – increased fraud means they are turning down shoppers cards if their spending deviates from the norm. Take your mobile – you can often sort the problem out over the phone.
Many items are much better value in France – but please check United Kingdom prices before you go – it's not always the case! Decathlon and Go sport are the leading sports suppliers in France.
