    This has probably been asked before but times move on...

    Is there a place near or on the concourse still where it's
    possible to purchase tobacco/cigarettes?

    Cheers.

    I've always gone with the flow....8-)

    There are £29 each way offers at the end of the month and was hoping to do
    a straight in/straight out jobbie....

    Brussels Midi now actually has a duty free after security. They sell cigs there.

    Plus a wide array of Belgian beers. Couldn't resist a couple of bottles myself.

    But is the duty free worth it? I miss the old shop. It was a lot cheaper.

    But is it really that wide or is it all just the standard "Leffe" or "Chimay" stuff which you can get over here anyway?

    I picked up two bottles of Blanche de Namur. There was a decent variety of stuff- probably a little cheaper than in the UK.

    Leffe and Chimay were however featured, yes. A lot of it I have seen at home- albeit often in more specialist beer and ale stores. (One in Ashbourne is good for Belgian stuff)

    Comically you could also get a case of Stella. Sure its local but...why :lol:

    The Stella in the U.K. is largely brewed in Luton, I think, compared with Leuven and is slightly weaker. I stand to be corrected though.

    EDIT: Google suggested both Magor in Wales and Luton.

    I thought the pint I had in Charleroi ages ago seemed a little more drinkable...

    Kinell...that went off topic pretty sharpish.

    Don't worry as I've implemented plan B now.

    Its more like a shop. Midi is too small for a walk through situation. Totally over priced.
