No, not really. You'd have to go to the Tabac & you'd probably not be able to buy "in bulk". They're quite expensive in French shops, much cheaper in Belgium. If you wanted a lot it would be worth a trip to Adinkerke, just over the border in Belgium (about 35 miles)

As Sylvnles answer, you realy need a tabac which does bulk selling. There are a few on the Avenue Roger Salengro, just look for the distinctive Tabac sign - main road from Auchan roundabout into Calais.

There is a bar/cafe/PMU/tabac (Le Saint Germain?) on the north side of the Place d'armes, just off the town centre, which sells in bulk and has a fair brand selection of english cigarettes, looks small but go in and ask, they have a lot of stock in the cellar. .

For prices just check the ferry websites, their prices are about the same as the country they are sailing to. Cigs on French destinations are therefore dearer than Belgian destinations. It is usually easier to buy on the ferry at roughly the same price as the country you are sailing to.

If you want cigars the French tabacs have a far more interesting selection than the pathetic offerings on the ferries.
