Paper catalogs and flyers ... there are those who find it hard to do without them, and those who criticize this waste of paper. Report to

She rushed to look for Agen's prunes which were on sale on Lidl's prospectus, but came out "annoyed".

"There are already more", breathes Louisa, an emergency nurse, who will therefore go "to Carrefour City, much more expensive".

Salma, she did not take anything special today, at the Lidl on rue du Chemin-Vert in Paris (eleventh), but still remembers the time when she bought the famous food processor there at a knockdown price. , unearthed there also on the catalog of the sign.

No more flyers?

To hear some customers, not really no… Sonia, who comes out of Picard in the rue de Ménilmontant (XXth), went there after receiving in her letterbox the catalog which praised a “tidal wave selection”: “ Usually, the fish are expensive, whereas there, I took salmon for a very reasonable sum, ”she rejoices.

Convenient to "browse and check"

Dalila, she “peels regularly” all the prospectuses, in paper version or online.

Recently, at Lidl, she set her sights on a charger at 6.99 euros, but also, for her teenager, on a load of sporting goods - handles for doing push-ups, etc.

- less than 5 euros each.

And even if she recently downloaded the Bonial application (which allows you to view all the brochures online), there is no question for her to give up the paper version of these catalogs.

"It's still much more practical to leaf through them and check off than to read them on your phone," she argues with conviction.


Advertising: why flyers are not going to disappear from your mailboxes

It's not that he wants to "sound like an old pain in the ass", but Jean-Louis thinks exactly the opposite: all those flyers in the mailboxes, it's "just heartbreaking and really not ecological", judge this retiree who came to shop at the Casino.

We asked to secure the doors by changing the digicodes, but that is not enough, ”explains the one whose“ Stop Pub ”signs were also torn off.

A source of savings

Between these two voices, Véronique does not hide it: she oscillates sometimes on one side, sometimes on the other.

Because these prospectuses, basically, she finds them "very useful".

This caregiver who lives in Sarcelles (Val-d'Oise) assumes her chronic infidelity as a client: “Depending on the promotions I find here and there, I change stores, and I save a lot of money thanks to that!

The last time, she went to Auchan for "packs of 10 liters of milk".

However, she would not be shocked at the idea of ​​giving up paper flyers ... if asked.

“I will make an effort to change my habits and I will consult the catalogs on the site of each brand.
