British Corner Shop – the supermarket for British Expats

It is sometimes funny and often surprising the things that you really miss when you are living abroad. Although you have access to many wonderful new and exciting things to eat and drink for the whole family and plenty of choice when it comes to household products and toiletries, you naturally often crave some familiarity.

For example, maybe you can’t live without baked beans? Or you miss the smell of your favourite washing powder? British food and other products can be found abroad but they are often very expensive and the range can be limited.

That’s where British Corner Shop (BCS), the online supermarket for British Expats can really make a welcome difference to your life! The website carries over 7,000 of the most popular branded food, household and toiletry items not forgetting the impressive toddler and baby section - parenting can be hard enough at times without struggling to get hold of those key products that really work for you!

So you don’t have to live without Heinz Baked Beans, Marmite, PG Tips Tea, Cow & Gate baby food, Persil Non-Bio Powder, Johnson’s Baby Shampoo, Calpol and lots more! And if you can’t find what you are looking for, British Corner Shop will do their best to add it to their product range.

BCS delivers worldwide and delivery costs to France are a very reasonable £11.99 for a large 25-30kg parcel. The website features a very useful shopping basket optimiser that makes sure you get the best value for delivery.

There is also a fantastic range of premium quality fresh products available for delivery to France including pork, beef, lamb, bacon, sausages, pies, cheese, cream and even bread. The fresh element of an order is delivered separately in specially designed packaging and delivery costs for fresh products start at only £10.99.

British Corner Shop prides itself on excellent customer service and has been packing and delivering food parcels for over a decade. There is even a generous Reward Point scheme. You just need to register to start earning points every time you shop and you can then cash them in against future orders. You can also get up to 15% discount by recommending your friends.
