I had to wait 20 minutes before my very annoyed partner sat on the steps and was promptly told not too....his reply if she was... More

When we arrived we had to wait for an assistant but were not offered a drink, I did note that other customers had indeed been offered one. When we did get served the assistant did not know about the handbag... More

We visited this famous store of Chanel, just where Chanel herself has lived. To my wife it seems to be a paradise (great fan of Chanel). The service is good and fast. To me it seemed like a luxurious super market, since it was too crowded if you realize how really high the prices are. Overall, I have to admit... More

We went in and were immediately greeted and shown a sales assistant. We looked at many purses but found nothing that attracted our eye this time around. The prices for all the purses were very similar to US prices. Maybe you save 50$-100$ depending on the exchange rate. If you can wait in the DeTax Vat refund line at the... More

Last July was my first visit to Paris and I wanted to buy my very first Chanel bag at the original store but at the same time I also wanted to try out an experiment with their customer service. I deliberately dressed down and even changed into my flip flops! I did give them a tiny clue though, I was... More

Nice to visit the Chanel flagship store at 31 Rue Cambon. Sales staff were courteous and willing to assist in queries. Accompanied my colleague, who bought a few items there. They even provided a brown bag to cover the actual Chanel paper bag, just so that you would not look so conspicuous carrying a Chanel bag around Paris.

The sales girl who helped us, Julie, was very sweet and warm. We were treated to champagne while we shopped and had a great experience here. Left with our first Chanel bags!

I have never set foot in a Chanel store or boutique but could not miss seeing the Rue Cambon store. The only Chanel things I have had previously were bottles of perfume and lotions. While I anticipated being treated not so well, everybody in the Mothership was so nice. I got to see the famous mirrored stairs! I now own... More
