Paris, the capital of department stores
Founded in the mid-19th century by the innovative French entrepreneur Aristide Boucicaut, Bon Marché was the first ever modern department store. This pioneering retail idea swiftly became a huge success and various competitors followed in quick succession, including La Samaritaine, Le Bazar de l'Hôtel de Ville and Printemps Haussmann. Shoppers could now browse in comfort and find anything they required under one roof. So it is today, and the pioneering Parisian department stores are still considered the finest in the world, with their gorgeous architecture, superb selections of goods and irresistible ambience.
As much frequented by tourists as by Parisians, the department stores are the symbol of luxury and ready-to-wear to the French. Galeries Lafayette on the Boulevard Haussmann welcomes more than 100,000 visitors daily over an area of ??70,000m2. With its stunning Art Nouveau design dating from 1912 and its magnificent stained-glass dome, this is an iconic one-stop shopping destination. The choice is amazing, and during the sales you can find great deals on thousands of brands.
