Le Bon Marche is the oldest department store in Paris. It was established in 1838 and since then it has been successively expanded. Currently, it is one of the most exclusive shopping destinations in Paris. There are high-end boutiques here, including Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Hermes. At the food stalls you can get the most sophisticated delicacies from around the world.
The history of Le Bon Marche begins with a store with haberdashery, ribbons and lace. Less than 20 years after establishing the store, Aristide Boucicaut entered into a partnership with the Videau brothers and significantly expanded the offer. By developing his department store, he introduced fixed prices for individual products, sales and fashion for printing product catalogs that went to regular customers living a greater distance from the center of Paris.
Le Bon Marche owes its present appearance to the reconstruction from the second half of the 19th century. It is a neoclassical building with a corner entrance and a sloping roof with mansard windows. The multi-level interior is maintained in the same style and in white. Elegance and simplicity dominate. The boutiques located here are designed for people with a wealthy wallet, but just seeing an exclusive department store can also be an attraction.
