Shops and attractions days of operation

Howdy all,

I am gathering more information for our upcoming family trip. When we spent a month in Avignon, we found that more or less from Sunday afternoon to Wednesday mornings almost every shop closed, even some grocery markets.

Will we find the same thing during our 6 weeks in Dinan? Not in any way a deal breaker, but as we have some new travelers with us this trip it is nice to give everyone a heads up.

Thanks!

Mark

Not at all - as mj6 says the supermarket at Dinan is closed on a Sunday and a lot of the eateries are closed on a Monday but it is a busy tourist town with lots going on between Sun and Weds so fear not :-)

Most everything is closed in France on Sunday afternoon (except restaurants, tourist attractions, and some corner shops)

Most everything is closed in small towns on Monday (same exceptions)

Nothing is typically closed on Tuesday or Wednesday, unless there's a holiday.

Thanks all.

Sounds like Avignon has a bit of an odd schedule. We look forward to experiencing what Dinan has to offer.
