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

Paris equivalent to London's Harrods, Selfridges.... Great value during sale times, they have a super cafe called Rose Bakery.... Good place to cover a lot of shopping in short time. There is also a food hall on other side of street, which has great selection... Well worth a visit....

On a recent trip to Paris, we popped into Le Bon Marche in Saint Germain. Amazing department store to say the least! However, depending on what we were there for, you received different levels of service. The first floor is mostly high end designer brands and cosmetic/perfume counters. We went to Louis Vuttion here and had the best service I... More

Incorrectly regarded as the world's first department store and rivalling the more popular Galleries Lafayette this another big department store. The good market has expensive and high end products and also some mid range goods as well. As with department stores in Paris its also worth seeking out the food hall as well.

Visit to browse or even better pick up things for a picnic...we didn't know what to choose...amazing. There is a smart little park next door where you can sit back, relax and enjoy or if you can wait 15 minutes to tuck in Jardins de Luxembourg are also close by.

This is probably one of best shopping experiences in Paris and the world. An incredible selection of high end products, whether clothing, furniture, house goods, perfumes, etc., and some of the best, helpful and friendly service to be found. On top, the shop provides plenty of space and is not a crowded madhouse like many other shops. You can almost... More

All the luxury brands are there. You can walk around the "boutiques" without being bothered or looked at the wrong way because of what you're wearing. In my case, staff was surprisingly friendly and helpful. Worth visiting, if only for the experience of seeing all those labels under one roof...
