I checked with amusement the Santa Marita rhum.
Of course that island does not exist, I think it comes from Marie-Galante or Guadeloupe and so can sport the "Appelation d'Origine" absolutely legally. I don't think they sell a lot, maybe is it aimed to restaurants and the like.

If you want to get white and ambré agricole rhum, go to the next superette or supermarket (Auchan, Carrefour, Leclerc, Dia, etc.) You'll find them cheaper than Nicolas.

Nicolas is OK for older units, but they are not cheap and have not a wide choice. Check for promotions. Locals wine shops are also good places to find older rhums.
