The biggest of the grand magasins (department stores) sports an over-the-top Art Nouveau dome under which oodles of fashionable goodies are displayed for style-conscious shoppers. A bit less expensive than its more glamorous rival next door (see Printemps, below), it’s also so huge that you can usually find just what you are looking for. It has everything from luxury labels to kids’ stuff, not to mention books, stationary, wine, and a gourmet shop.
