Le Bon Marché

7th Arrondissement
Department Store

Rotating art installations like Ai Weiwei’s silk and bamboo kite exhibition earlier this year, the beautiful art deco glass ceiling, pop-up boutiques from places like Hay in Copenhagen, and the adjoining Grand Epicerie food hall and market make Le Bon Marché the most fun of all the larger department stores in Paris. Founded in 1852, it’s also considered the world’s first modern department store.
