Off license near Gare du Nord?

I'm going to be visiting Paris for a day next week by Eurostar, and about the only opportunity for shopping that I'll get will be half an hour before I board the train home. Is there anywhere close to the train station where I can buy wine/beer to take back? I think I've tried this before and failed miserably.

  1. tsg20 - I'm on the Eurostar on Monday with the exact same tought as you. Did you find anywhere?

    1. Sadly not :-( I think Mondays (and perhaps also Sundays) are also the worst day for this by some distance, as many shops are closed. Sorry I can't be of more help.
