agree  xxxBourth: Seems a strange thing for what I call a department store though!/ Hypermarket (Auchan, Carrefour) yes, but we are told "department store" (Galeries Lafayette, BHV, Printemps).

  -> Your average hypermarket sells everything from beef to barbecues to bedside tables. I think it's probably that sort of store.
