Any ideas for a shopping (centre) in France not too far from Geneva

Dear Everyone

Normally pop over the border to Ferney-Voltaire for Carrefour or Leclerc from Gevena for groceries. Does anyone have any recommendations for all round shopping in in France, maybe the nearest shopping centre?

Any ideas gratefully received!
Thanks!

Val Thoiry is reasonably close, and has pretty decent opening hours. Only drawback is that the supermarket in there is a Migros and that they have this silly habit of not selling booze. There is a Nicolas wine shop just outside but it closes earlier.

For more shopping I'd drive to Annecy and either stroll in the main streets or go to Centre Courier

Val Thoiry is not bad at all, ton of little shops to get nice shoes, clothes, fabric store + home decor, toy shop, etc. Sport shop is really good. Migros is a funny mix btw CH Migros and the usual French stuff, I prefer Geant/Casino for groceries. But Val Thoiry Migros has a nice section for papeterie and soaps.
