For some time now, these camping items have been selling very quickly. “We have very small bivouac stoves, but today as far as camp stoves go, this is the one we sell the most“, explains the saleswoman, showing a larger model.

In the beginning there were quite old people, today we have all age groups“, continues the saleswoman. This is the case of Jérémy, who came to the store to equip himself for the case: “We’re being told about power outages this winter, and I can’t see myself without power at home with a two and a half year old, so I’m taking the lead“, explains this father of the family, choosing his stove.
