This is the first department store ever, anywhere. It opened in 1848. How else do you lock up a name like "The Good Market"? It succeeded the covered alleyways, called galleries, that first appeared in the early part of the 19th century and introduced the world to shopping as entertainment. Le Bon Marche took that concept, expanded it and introduced... More

That will be a useful phrase to remember when shopping au Bon Marche. I have saved so much money shopping here--the store itself is addictive with the finest quality goods and its bright lighting. Architecturally, much of the main store is almost in a class with the grand domed terraces of les Galeries Lafayette. But back to BM: Like I... More

After a disastrous time at Galeries Lafayette we came here and shopped in peace with no huge crowds. They have only really upmarket brands but I love choosing a few good pieces and getting less. We had good service. Will never return to the mayhem at Galeries Lafayette.

Bon Marche, the biggest Left Bank department store and the oldest in Paris, stands in the 7th arrondissement. It specializes in luxury fashions but also sells books, furniture, housewares, etc. I find better fashion bargains and one-of-a-kind merchandise in small boutiques throughout the city. The store's department that draws me back repeatedly, however, is La Grande Epicerie de Paris, which... More

When I arrived at the Women's restroom, a young woman cleaner told me it was closed. I stepped aside, and at that moment, a visibly rushed (and visibly pregnant) woman entered. She was told it was closed. "I am pregnant!", she exclaimed, making haste toward the toilet. The cleaner blocked her and repeated, "Fermé". Who would not permit a minute's... More

We go there every time we are in Paris. Gourmet take-out food while in Paris. Endless choice of impeccable quality. Worth every dime.

We only visited the Epicerie, because that is all the time we had, but it was amazing!! So many products, fruits and veggies that looked like they should be featured in a magazine, not being sold to the public. Items that you would never think would exist, but do, there. It was such a delight to walk through this magnificent... More

I love this department store! It is one of the only ones where I have been in which you can have a relaxing shopping experience. They offer everything you can wish for and have an excellent taste. Highly recommended!

Like all the previous reviews has said, the Food Hall is amazing! The environment is so beautiful that you never want to leave. The choice of food selection was also quite big. I bought some wonderful cheeses.Unfortunately, we had difficulty communicating with the staff members, so we relied on lots of pointing. However, the other customers were always willing to... More
