Founded in the mid-1800s, this was one of the world’s first department stores. Despite its name (bon marché means affordable), this is the most expensive of Paris’ grand magasins. It is also the most stylish, with beautiful displays and fabulous clothes of every imaginable designer label, both upscale and midrange. Right next door is its humongous designer supermarket, La Grande Epicerie.
