We are dashing across to France for a booze run in our little T4 Geoffrey in June.
According to Carrefour the hypermarket is open from 9.00 am till 9.30 pm Thursday to Saturday but according to the Cite Europe site the shops are open Monday to Saturday, 10.00 am to 8.00 pm, so I obviously can't rely on their site for information.

What I really want to know is the opening hours of the main doors so that we can access the loos. On previous visits we had our coachbuilt Percy but we now have Geoffrey & a Porta-Potti so things will be a little different in the toilet department!

If it is a booze run then you would be better off visiting the booze warehouses at calais.
In fact some of them will pay for your ferry crossing if you shop with them

Thanks but we know what we want to do & have already booked the Chunnel which didn't cost us a penny. :)

Don't know if this is much use.
The Carrefour service station has cassette emptying facilities/water 200m from the motorhome carpark, that I do know. It may have toilets, that I'm not certain of.
The emptying point would almost certainly 24hours access, service station hours ?

I know what you mean, they don't open very early for sure. I have not been there when the shopping corridor was open and the shops not though. Does Carrefour have an email address for their Cite Europe shop maybe.

They only list a customer service telephone number on the Cite Europe site. I have tried asking on Trip Advisor.

The fuel station is at street level, do you mean the borne? because that's on the fuel station forecourt, street level. I've never used it, I use the cassette emptying point at the Auchen fuel station Coquelles 3km away, it's a seperate lane to the fuel lanes themselves so there's 24 hour access. The water was turned off last time I used it but the WC flap was useable.

That's the one, maybe 300m rather than 200m from the motorhome parking?

Carrefour hours are not the always the same as cite europe. i.e. bars and restaurants can be open when carrefour is closed. Best to check with centre itself and not one trader in it. Services Water, waste and chemical toilet is open 24/7 at the service station and its free.

Thanks Scampervan, I remembered the underground one because we couldn't use it with a coachbuilt.

Thanks, I know the hours are different, that's why I was asking about the actual shopping centre for access to the loos.
I posted the shopping centre's quoted hours as an example of why you couldn't rely on their info.
