The door was opened by a very sour faced woman. I apologised for my lack of French. She told me "Only French" and closed the door on me!! The only time we had been rude to in this quaint little town. This happened today. Sept 22.

Hello We are sorry to hear that you have been poorly received at our General Store. The lady who received you does not speak English, so she was inconvenienced by your arrival. This in no way excuses his unprofessional attitude and we apologize for it. We will fix this problem as soon as possible. We offer an animated guided tour in French, but it is possible for English-speaking people to take a self-guided tour of our establishment. We hope to see you again and wish you can come and visit our beautiful store with its treasures from the thirties. Sorry again for this unpleasant experience

You just come by and have to wait. When we arrived there, they said that the next group will enter after 15min and a group of 12 people may enter. We were part of the last people to arrive (10th-12th). Then, the first 10 people entered and they said to us that depending on the capacity of the next group, maybe we can enter after 30min if the group is less than 10. But if not, we have to wait for 1h30 for the next visit!!! So you understand that 's why it's doesn't worth it to come by and wait if there is no fixed schedule at all. Don't waste your time. It's just depending on their mood. The worst thing happened after that's why we decided to leave: everybody else left when we heard the 1h30 waiting time..so we were the only ones who stayed. Ho w stupid we were to think that he will tell us to enter afterwards... The old men just went outside the magasin general and just look at us without a word and went for a cigarette. We were waiting for almost 30min, again. So, we decided to leave after all. Just FYI, there is some other magasins like that to visit, so maybe take your chance in more organized ways! Especially in vacation.

Hello, Thank you for your comment. Sanitary restrictions with social distancing reduce our ability to accommodate many 60 people to 24 (2 groups of 12 people). I don't know how many of you there were, but he must have had too many people in there to be able to let you all in together. There is no visit schedule since our animated guided tour is continuous. We join you for the current visit and when the animation repeats you have taken the tour. On the other hand, our animated guided theatrical visit is given in French. If you cannot understand French, it was possible for you to request a free visit. The person who greets people outside offers this alternative when they see that the customers are English speaking. We are very sorry for your waiting time outside, we are the first sorry to not be able to receive so many people at the same time. We look forward to providing you with the experience of the Authentic Historical General Store during your next stay in our magnificent region.

What an amazing place. The staff were were exceptional in helping me with my lack of French. They handed me an English booklet explaining about everything. Could have spent hours there. What a tribute to times gone by. A sentimental journey for all. Thank you. Such a satisfying experience. Would highly recommend for all ages.
