Le Bon Marché, 7th Arr.
Tel: 33 1 44 39 80 00
Concierge.com's insider take:
Le Bon Marché is a reference for everything a department store (Paris's first) ought to be—from its Gustave Eiffel–designed glass and steel structure to its spacious floors and well-edited selections. You can linger in the ground-floor hat department and consider the millinery confections for the races or a grand wedding, or go up to the second-floor lingerie department for the most delectable display of the best, and frothiest, under-things. And if the shopathon takes its toll, pick up a portable snack at La Grande Épicerie, a tony temple to international food.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 10 to 8 pm.
