About
Merci is a place created in March 2009 in the heart of the historic district of Haut-Marais. Bernard and Marie-France Cohen, founders of BONPOINT the children's fashion label, realized that Paris lacked a place which would bring together the best of the world of fashion, of design, of household goods with welcome refreshment areas. A business established in the heart of its region and of its country, Merci has already created more than 70 permanent jobs. Merci is, moreover, very pleased to act as a developer or launch-pad to the young designers who, thanks to this sounding-board, can make themselves known to the many customers and international personalities who visit Merci. Merci is a commercial enterprise "like any other company" founded by shareholders "unlike any other shareholders". The founders decided that the proceeds of this investment would serve to fund an endowment paying for educational projects and development in south-west Madagascar. Bernard and Marie France Cohen wanted to say MERCI to life, MERCI to the talents and to the designers who made this success possible. It is this success which makes their generosity possible. In 2013, Marie-France Cohen passed on the torch The current Merci team has kept up the commitment and the founders’ original dream by contributing year on year to the foundation. Thanks to our clients who make this project possible.

I went there and just stayed in 1 night. But I love the view and the service was very good. I will come back if I have chance.

Curious to check out this cool Parisian store.
Oct 2019 • Friends
Upscale and loved the design element. Fun to explore the different levels and loved the cool entrance through the coffee shop/library. I rated it a 3 star for affordability as about all we could afford was a kitchen towel. Clothing is outrageously priced even for Paris standards. A disappointment there.
It deserves a 5 star rating for being super cool.
Glad we saw it but we won’t go back.

Charming, pricey boutique
Sep 2019 • Family
I could spend all day here looking at the assortment of chic clothes, jewelry, homewares, beauty products, and more — just looking, mind, as you won’t find many bargains here. But it is worth a stop if you enjoy a fun, unique shopping experience and lots of lovely goods to covet. Their signature medal bracelets and necklaces are very inexpensive and make nice souvenirs and gifts to bring home. I would definitely visit again just to window shop and soak up the aspirational, Parisian “cool girl” vibe.

Cafe and store
Nov 2019 • Friends
We had a hot drink outside which was relatively pricy (maybe not for Paris) but very good. The inside was a concept store with the “merci” brand selling clothes and various other pieces at an affordable price, however, the other “vintage” pieces were very expensive.

Concept store in Paris
Oct 2019
After a few years we went again to this concept store to get an impression of the new things in paris. But it seems that the collection has not changed a lot. We were a bit disappointed.

Merci concept store, Used Book Cafe
Aug 2019 • Family
During one week in Paris, this August, i visited Merci and ate at the Used Book Cafe three times. It's quite pricey but worth it. Salmon bagel was excellent. Had hot chocolate; fruit crumble; chocolate brownie and homemade lemonade with fresh mint; Ceylon tea. All delicious. Everyone agreed the atmosphere was relaxing and we werent rushed. Each time we were served by the same staff member Charley who despite being super busy, looked after us and couldnt have been more helpful. Have been returning here for about 4 years now and will be back next visit to paris.

Well curated concept store
Feb 2019 • Solo
This is a well curated concept store. There are both new and vintage furnishings as well as some clothing. Great hardware and fixtures downstairs and their linens are beautiful, if not inexpensive.
