Located in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district, the Bon Marché Rive Gauche, created in 1852, was the first department store to open in Paris. Today, it is an absolute reference for French refinement for fashion, furniture and even delicatessen. Every year, as Christmas approaches, passers by are amazed by the beautifully decorated windows reminiscing the grandeur and spirit of the “Left Bank”.
