What follows is a small selection of basic self-service furniture, appliance and DIY hardware chains stores in France. There is no guarantee that anyone will speak English, but once you have found what you need, little more than basic French should be necessary for the transaction.
The French government controls shop sales in France, and the periods are fixed to five weeks during the winter and five weeks during the summer. An additional two weeks of sales are allowed each year, without fixed dates.
The winter sales generally begin the first Wednesday of the year; the summer sales usually start last the Wednesday in June.
