“Auchan! Ouch!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

We were picking up some last minute purchases in Marne La Valee before getting the train to the airport, at the end of a trip to Disney. After we paid, the cashier called a security man over and demanded we allow him search our suitcase! it was so ridiculous and shocking that we agreed to it at the time, she was ecstatic when she saw a magazine in the case, told him to give it to her and attempted to scan it, I presume to prove it was a stolen item, despite it being written in english and slightly dog eared. He was obviously embarrased by the entire incident but went along with the facade. We demanded our purchases be refunded, and left. This experience was beyond ridiculous, rude behaviour is often experienced in France and while I have shrugged it off on trips over the years I made my mind up to never return to the country.

“Shoppers Delight”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

We escaped here from the madness of Eurodisney, which was convenient as we were staying nearby. For us, the best part was the huge Auchan supermarket at the lower level, the only place around where you can get fresh milk.
Aaside from that, there's all the familiar names you might expect, plus lots of French stores. Nothing bargain basement, but a good experience.

“Shopping heaven when you've ad enough Disney”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

We went here with our 2 teenage girls and they loved it, shame though as the price of the designer stores (CK, Disel, Tommy Hilfiger Ralph Lauren etc ) was a little out of their reach. We did however find other stores further inside the mall like H&M, Zara to mention a couple. We would definitely visit again. Also they have nice patisserie counters with a great selection of cakes which we rewarded ourselves with after the shopping.

“Fnac store is Huge!!!”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

this mall is pretty, nothing fancy, not at all, just the guy that plays piano, take a look at the picture... it is near to La Valle Village if i'm not wrong at a side... even in La Valle Village there are some expensive stuff. remember that paris is expensive, way too expensive so, if you like to buy bargains this is not the country for you. there are no cheap prices. the Fnac store is huge, amazing if you like music this is the store for you... the food court has many choices and the food is great... but as i said it can be expensive. being in paris is once in a lifetime experience if you are carefully checking prices you might spoil yourself once in a while. but believe me is not easy too many gelaterias, too many pastries, too many croissants, too many parfums. you just have to enjoy...

“Huge center with lots of French stores”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

The shopping center is located not more than a couple of hundred meters away from a train station, which is reached easily with the RER train from Disneyland (1 stop). Visit the outlet village outside the center. But beware, the prices aren't much lower than at must stores.
