If you like to explore department stores, Le Bon Marche is well worth a visit. Even if you don't make any purchases it is very interesting to browse especially in La Grande Epicerie. When I visited in July it was sale time and I was lucky enough to find some bargains.

We stopped here by mistake. We were looking for the Bon March Le Grande Epicerie next door at 38 rue de Sevres and came in here. The store is by far among the best Department stores in the world that we've been to visit and that includes most New York and Boston stores, Harrod's in London, and KaDeWe in Berlin.... More

My wife is the shopper. For certain their food floor is fantastic with so many choices of quality fresh food.The store itself is well laid out and you can find seats while your wife shops. ;-)

My favourite place in Paris with La Grande Epicerie also from Le Bon Marche. Here you'll find anything you need from clothes to housing furnitures. Been goin there for years. Two nice restaurants in the shop.

Exceptional selection of designer fashions, home goods and kids items. Brands such as Chanel, LV, Prada, Hermes, etc. Best shoe selection I have seen in a long time. Kids toys are extensive but fashion somewhat limited. Also take note to keep your receipts and file for your tax refund right there in the store, makes it much easier!!

If you love department stores and gourmet foods, then this is the place for you. It is full of high end stores and they even have a large room devoted to pens - glass cases full of them! The food emporium is a lot of fun, too. It is a great place to pick up the fixings for a nice... More

I hadn't been to Le Bon Marche is a couple of years and when I visited a couple of weeks ago, I found it quite disappointing. Maybe it's because it was in the midst of sale season but I don't think so. The departments are disjointed, there store was dead. Empty. Nobody there. The Galeries Lafayette brand boutiques had lines... More

Le Bon Marche was amazing, like nothing I had ever seen before. The inside dripping with glamour and only a few steps from the metro. I loved it, and would recommend it to anyone interested in department stores.

This department store was highly recommended to me by my Parisien clients when I was coming here for work more than 20 years ago. This is still the place I prefer to shop in when I am in town. Way better than Printemps and Galeries Lafayette! Printemps charges you €1.50 to use the washroom! Unbelievable..!! and these 2 places are... More

A wonderful department store in Paris, with floors for Women's, Men's, furniture cushions bedding bath lighting cookware, haberdashery, stationary, children's clothes toys books, men's and women's shoes and accessories, a wonderful food hall, perfumes and some nice restaurant/cafes in store. The whole store is tres chic, and the food hall is a particular favourite. There are some nice cafes near... More
