The inner city Carrefours and Auchans are unlikely to have any CR2's in stock. These are mostly tiny supermarkets only retailing the necessities. You want one of the larger ones further from the city center. I'd take the Metro and/or RER to a hypermarche outside of the peripherique.
Would you generalize..."at Carrefour or Carrefour Market, but not Carrefour City or Carrefour Express" ?
I got lucky! The camera store was 25 meters from the hotel and the batteries were fully charged!! The last time in Paris I walked the Champs de Elysee store by store for kilometers and when I bought the batteries for the Hasselblad PME, the batteries were bad. I did not know that and ended up taking a taxi to the Bastille area to buy a Sekonic lightmeter for over 300 Euros for the rest of the trip.
Thank you for your responses.
For other photographers who might have similar needs in the future, could you name the store and the street on which it is located?
BTW, I can highly recommend going to Sacre Coeur church in Montmartre and set youself in the pews just before Vespers (evening prayer) at 18.00...the resident nuns have the most gloriously beautiful singing voices! 'Angelic' is an apt description. My wife and I happened upon Vespers there while visiting France a few months before the sad Notre Dame cathedral fire.
