Paris department stores

The Bon Marché is the oldest Parisian department stores. In 1838, Paul and Justin Videau opened a business where they sold linen, umbrellas and haberdashery. Aristide Boucicaut joined the two brothers in 1853 and decided to create a department store focused on women. In the following years, he bought the shares of his associates, enlarged the store, staged the items, labeled their products. The Department Stores were born. They have always sold the best of what the city and France is famous for: high end French fashion brands, lingerie, jewellery, French perfume brands and exquisite tableware. A number of them closed down as the competition from Shopping Malls intensified. Some of them successfully turned into upscale venues with as key advantages are central location, large choice of top brands for quick shopping, tax refund, personal shopper, delivery to hotels and abroad.

Shopping at Paris Shopping Malls

It took a long time for Shopping Malls to establish themselves in the city. Historically, you went shopping at the department stores, in the top fashion streets and at the myriad of stores everywhere. Department Stores turned into upscale venues. A few downtown urban projects of the 20th century included large Shopping Malls.

Nowadays, Parisians regularly go to Paris Shopping Malls. These shopping venues combine choice, affordable prices and availability of restaurants. Most Shopping Malls are open on Saturdays and Sundays. They have a large choice of French specialties including fashion, perfume, wine and food. Le Forum des Halles near Centre Pompidou is the largest shopping mall downtown. Beaugrenelle is close to the Eiffel Tower. The largest shopping malls are not in downtown. Les Quatre Temps in La Défense and Val d'Europe near Disneyland, easily reachable by metro, are recommended.
