LE BON MARCHÉ : AN ENTIRE SECTION DEDICATED TO KIDS

The mythical Parisian department store, temple of fashion and French refinement, has recently opened a new children’s zone.

Above the sun filled atrium presenting the most elegant luxury accessories and first two floors dedicated to women, the criss crossed white-tilled elevator will lead you to the third floor where 1600 m2 are entirely dedicated to kids.

Well lit thanks to large windows with view on the Boucicault garden and spacious enough to allow wide prams to stroll comfortably along the alleys, the area has been carefully thought out for families.

A friendly and playful environment has been created to make little ones and their parents feel at ease and enjoy a pleasant shopping experience. Beautifully decorated, one has the impression of being in a huge playroom which will no doubt recall happy childhood memories.

The clothes selection, perfectly in line with the essence of the Bon Marché is meticulously chosen and frequently updated. The department store hosts the famous classic children’s brands such as Bonpoint, Petit Bateau, Bonton but also likes to invite new niche designer brands.

 

More than clothes, the children’s zone offers a complete lifestyle with toys, books, nursery decor, shoes, fun accessories….We particularly appreciate the book section in the spaceship!

Yet the very best is the “Récré des Enfants”.

While making your birth gifts and presents, you can safely leave your kids with child experts to take part in fun ateliers: drawing, experimenting, reading, cooking, playing… your darlings will be able to express their creativity leaving you to shop at your own pace!

Besides having fun, visiting the Bon Marché is definitely worthwhile from a cultural and educative point of view. Opened in 1852 by the Parisian merchant Aristide Boucicaut, it is considered to be one of the oldest department store. At the forefront of innovation, Le Bon Marché was among the very first to offer a wide diversity of goods where shoppers could walk around and browse undisturbed in a one and unique setting. It was also the first to offer seasonal sales.

Several refurbishment have been made to keep up with clients new needs yet the authentic Parisian elegance and refinement of the place is undiminished and continues to fascinate tourists from all over the world up until today.
