Regarded as the fashion capital of the world, Paris is the retail, administrative and economic capital of France, accounting for 20% of the French population and 30% of national GDP. Paris is one of the top global cities for tourists, offering many cultural pursuits for visitors.
New luxury hotel openings and new visitors from developing countries are fueling the luxury sector, one of Paris’s main growth factors as shown by certain significant openings and department stores moving up-market. Other recent movements have accentuated the shift upmarket of the areas around Rue Saint-Honoré (Chanel, Tory Burch, Alexander McQueen), Boulevard Saint-Germain (Moncler, Omega) and in Le Marais district (Gucci, Fendy, Moncler, Givenchy).
The accessible-luxury market segment is reaching maturity. The largest French proponents have grown opportunistically by consolidating their positions in Paris (e.g. Claudie Pierlot and The Kooples).
Sustained demand from international retailers also reflects the ongoing expansion of leading mass-market retailers. H&M recently added several to its French network, plus other moreupscale brands (Cheap Monday, & Other Stories and COS). Demand is also coming from the likes of Burger King and Costa Coffee, plus Marks & Spencer’s recent blitz of small-format food shops (M&S Food). A few high-end specialized retailers have enlivened markets in Paris, while that Lafayette Gourmet has reopened on boulevard Haussmann ahead of the much-anticipated Eataly.
CHAMPS-ELYSEESOften referred to as "la plus belle avenue du monde" (the world’s most beautiful avenue), the Champs-Elysées links the Parisian landmarks of Place de la Concorde and Arc de Triomphe and is a hot destination for locals and tourists alike. 100 million people walk through the avenue each year, making the Champs-Elysées one of the most vibrant retail locations in the World, offering unparalleled exposure to numerous internationally recognized retailers. The Champs-Elysées host a wide range of activity sectors from mass-market retailers, mainly located on the even side of the avenue to upper-range and luxury brands on the odd side The Champs-Elysées remained relatively quiet in 2014. The even-numbered side, traditionally the more expensive of the two, did see a few major openings, but most of these had been launched long before (Tiffany & Co at no. 62). This maintenance of the status quo in no way suggests a loss of appetite of retailers, whose demand remains strong but which are confronted with a very limited number of opportunities. Future projects will largely comprise refurbishment of existing sales points (Cartier). A few openings will also confirm, in the relatively short term, the move upscale of the Champs-Elysées, whether on the odd-numbered side, where at no. 77 Longchamp recently opened its largest European store, or on the even-numbered side, where at no. 52-60 the former Virgin Megastore will be replaced by Galeries Lafayette.
AVENUE MONTAIGNE/AVENUE GEORGE V/Rue François 1erForming a small triangle between the Champs-Elysées and the River Seine, and comprising some of the most prestigious French hotels including Le Plaza Athénée, Le Prince de Galles or Le George V, the area delimited by Avenue Montaigne, Avenue George V and Rue François 1er is often referred to as Paris Golden Triangle, the heart of the French luxury industry and the place where every major international luxury player has to be. Benefitting from the boom in luxury retailing and the rise in the number of rich tourists from emerging countries visiting the French capital, this area has recently seen buoyant activity. Avenue Montaigne in particular, the most prestigious jewel of the French retail luxury market, has seen many moves and deals including expansions (Chanel), new openings (Yves Saint-Laurent) and refurbishments (Versace, Fendi). Given the severely restricted supply available on Avenue Montaigne, demand from prestigious retailers occasionally spilled over into neighboring sites. This is particularly true for Rue François 1er and Rue de Marignan whose address closest to avenue Montaigne has recently aroused interest among several retailers (Azzedine Alaïa, Maison Ullens, etc.).
RUE DU FAUBOURG SAINT-HONOREA 2 km-long street linking Place des Ternes to Rue Royale, Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré is Paris’ most important retail luxury market with Avenue Montaigne. The section between Avenue de Marigny and Rue Royale is home to world-renowned luxury retailers. Unlike Avenue Montaigne however, and though Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré boasts several traditional French players in the luxury sector including Hermès or Yves Saint-Laurent, the street is dominated by Italian brands such as Prada, Gucci or Missoni, a trend that has been further accentuated by the arrival of Brunello Cucinelli and Berluti and the extension projects of Moncler and Prada. The section between Rue Miromesnil and Place des Ternes is a more mixed-use area, accommodating many art galleries, antique shops and restaurants.
RUE SAINT-HONORERue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré runs into Rue Saint-Honoré, a 2 km-long street linking Rue Royale to the Châtelet District. This street has been going up-market over the past four years due notably to the opening of a new luxury hotel in 2011, Le Mandarin Oriental and the arrival of several newcomers including Chloe, Dsquared², Gianfranco Lotti or Balenciaga. The section between Rue Royale and Place Vendôme is the main focus for luxury retailers including Chanel, Christian Dior, Valentino or Jaeger-Lecoultre but also accommodates upper-range trendy fashion retailers including Sandro, Maje or & Other Stories. Given the severely restricted supply available, luxury brands are now gradually expanding beyond the most established sections of the street, with new significant openings recently registered nearby the Colette concept-store (Peuterey, Missoni) and in adjacent streets such as rue Cambon (Camille Fournet, Agent Provocateur) or rue d’Alger (Talbot Runhof).
PLACE Vendôme/RUE DE LA PAIXThis premium retail scene benefits from important influx of rich tourists, as the area is also home to some of the most renowned Parisian hotels and restaurants including Le Ritz, Le Meurice and Le Carré des Feuillants. Place Vendôme is a key luxury destination. The name of this square, located between Rue de la Paix and Rue Saint-Honoré, is in itself synonymous with the art of jewellery. Most French and international jewellery and watch brands have a flagship there, including Cartier, Van Cleef & Arpels, Bulgari or Chopard. Linking the Opéra district to Place Vendôme, Rue de la Paix also accommodates prestigious names including Vacheron-Constantin, Fred and Tiffany, mainly located nearby Place Vendôme while the section nearby Place de l’Opéra hosts middle-range retailers. Projects under way in that historic center of the Paris luxury market now involve mainly refurbishments and relocations. For example, some of Richemont Group’s brands are playing a lively game of musical chairs. IWC has moved to 3 rue de la Paix, formerly the site of Van Cleef & Arpels, while the latter brand has expanded its footprint in Place Vendôme by taking over space released by Mauboussin.
RUE DE PASSYLocated in the South West of Paris, Rue de Passy is a prominent retail submarket mostly targeting local wealthy residents. The street is dominated by mass-market to upper-range fashion retailers. Anchored by the 8,000 sq. m. Passy Plaza shopping centre, the street has recently been animated by the arrival of several retailers in several activity sectors, including high-end brands showing rue de Passy’s climb upmarket (Jo Malone, Poiray, Agnès B, La Grande Epicerie).
OPERA/MADELEINE/SAINT-LAZARE/BOULEVARD HAUSSMANNWith over 100 million people walking through the area annually, the geographic sector comprising Boulevard Haussmann’s department stores and the Saint-Lazare and Opera/Madeleine districts is the most vibrant retail location in France with the Champs-Elysées. All international retailers have a flagship in this area, which also boasts a huge number of cafes, restaurants, cinemas and theatres. The retail scene benefits from massive influx of tourists, attracted there by some of the most renowned monuments of the French capital including Opera Garnier. A major hub linking the West to the East of the Paris region with an easy access to Ile-de-France main transport infrastructures including Saint-Lazare railway station, this territory is also crowded with commuters. In addition with a very dense high street market and hundreds of middle-range to upper-range retailers, the area boasts several shopping centres and galleries including Passage du Havre and Le Madeleine (former Les Trois Quartiers shopping centre) as well as Le Printemps and Galeries Lafayette department stores. Anchored by Le Printemps and Galeries Lafayette department stores, the section between Rue de la Chaussée d’Antin and Rue du Havre is the most prominent submarket. Other sections are becoming increasingly attractive including the Saint-Lazare area, already benefitting from the recent opening of a 10,000 sq. m. shopping centre, the area close to the Opera since the arrival of Apple and Uniqlo and finally Boulevard des Capucines. While dominated traditionally by mid-range retailers and services, the boulevard des Capucines witnessed the grand opening in 2013 of an immense Bucherer store of 2,500 sq.m on the site of the former Old England flagship. Several luxury store openings followed in the wake of the megastore, confirmation of the ambitions of the watch sector’s largest players in an area ideally located between the rue de la Paix and the department stores on boulevard Haussmann, which are increasingly upmarket. Tag-Heuer (LVMH Group) moved into the premises vacated by Cameroon Airlines, just steps away from the new Cartier (Richemont) and Omega (Swatch Group) stores.
LE MARAIS (RUE DES FRANCS BOURGEOIS/RUE DES ROSIERS)Trends in retailer demand and the latest openings and development projects have reinforced the high-end positioning of Le Marais, a neighborhood with large numbers of tourists and a remarkable architectural heritage. In certain streets, Le Marais offers the additional attraction of Sunday openings. Linking Place des Vosges to Rue des Archives, Rue des Francs Bourgeois is the most important retail market in Le Marais district and a hot destination for trendy fashion retailers targeting both tourists and wealthy local residents (Zadig & Voltaire, Sandro). Rue des Francs Bourgeois is also home to several up-market cosmetics brands (MAC, Guerlain). Unlike most Parisian submarkets, many stores are opened on Sundays. Rue des Rosiers, the former heart of Paris’ historic Jewish quarter, is another prominent retail thoroughfare in Le Marais district. Along with many cafes and restaurants, the street is home to an increasing number of trendy fashion retailers (COS). As seen in the repositioning of the BHV department store, the expansion of trendy French retailers (The Kooples, Maje, etc.), and the proliferation of designer stores and showrooms (Margaret Howell and Tom Greyhound are the most recent), Le Marais’s rapid climb upmarket has set the perfect stage for the most exclusive brands. After the opening of a Marc Jacobs pop-up at the end of 2013 and the new Helmut Lang and Sonia Rykiel shops, in 2015 several big luxury names, Gucci, Givenchy, Fendi, Valentino and Moncler, recently opened menswear stores rue des Archives.
RUE DE RIVOLILocated on the very heart of Paris and parallel to the Seine, Rue de Rivoli is one of Paris’ main retail destinations and is undeniably back in demand. After the opening of Forever 21’s first Parisian flagship, the Rue de Rivoli saw new leases for large stores such as Mango and Intersport (replacing Esprit and Adidas respectively). The section between the BHV department store and the Louvre museum benefits from massive influx of tourists and French consumers and is home to many international mass-market fashion retailers, long time established or entering the Parisian market. The new LVMH Samaritaine department store, including a 26,000 sq. m. retail redevelopment project scheduled for opening by 2017, should give the location a boost in retail attractiveness.
RUE ETIENNE MARCEL/PLACE DES VICTOIRES/RUE MONTMARTREPartly pedestrian, the area between Le Forum des Halles and Les Grands Boulevards is a key retail hub on Paris Right Bank for trendy fashion retailers favored by the Parisian upper-middle class. Retailers’ activity has been traditionally concentrated on Rue Etienne Marcel and Place des Victoires, the majestic square formerly dedicated to the victories of Louis XIV the Great. Perpendicular to rue Etienne Marcel, Rue de Montmartre has seen a few openings by trendy fashion retailers including COS and & Other Stories. However, the whole area could suffer from the competition of other more sought-after retail poles nearby including Le Marais district and Le Forum des Halles shopping centre.
RUE DE RENNESLocated between Saint-Germain-des-Près and Montparnasse railway station, Rue de Rennes is the most important retail destination on Paris Left Bank in terms of the number of stores and the share of international retailers. Anchored by Fnac and Zara and hosting several fast fashion chains, the section between Rue Saint-Placide and Montparnasse train station is the most crowded with tourists and local consumers. The lower section of the street, close to the historical district of Saint-Germain-des-Près and its famous cafés including Le Café de Flore, is more up-market and boasts prestigious brands such as Cartier, Montblanc, Rolex or Kenzo.
BOULEVARD SAINT-GERMAIN/RUE DE SEVRESThe triangle formed by boulevard Saint-Germain-des-Prés, boulevard Raspail, and rue de Sèvres is the main hub for upper-range to luxury retailers on Paris Left Bank. However, unlike the major luxury thoroughfares on the Right Bank, this neighborhood depends largely on an affluent local clientele and insider tourism from Europe and the US. Benefiting from the boom in the tourism sector and the vicinity of Le Bon Marché department store (owned by LVMH Group and recently redeveloped/extended), this area has been boosted by the openings of Ralph Lauren and Hermès flagship stores a few years ago. This upmarket trend has been further accentuated with several openings on rue de Sèvres (Berluti, Shang Xia, Omega) and rue de Grenelle (Paul Smith, Céline), and will only be reinforced by the Lutétia’s refurbishment. The arrival of Moncler on boulevard Saint-Germain and Louis Vuitton on Place Saint-Sulpice, an area where a few prestigious names are long-time established (Cartier), also testified to the growing attractiveness of the historical district of Saint-Germain-des-Près. Finally, international retailers’ demand is now gradually expanding beyond the most established sections with new significant openings recently registered on Rue du Four (Diesel, UGG, Italia Independent, etc.) while the current redevelopment of Le Marché Saint-Germain shopping arcade, scheduled for opening in 2016, will probably give additional boost to the area.
LES QUATRE TEMPS/CNITLocated in La Défense, Europe’s largest business district, Les Quatre Temps is one of France’s largest and most profitable shopping centres and hosts nearly 50 million visitors annually. Opened in 1981, this 120,000 sq. m. shopping centre comprises 250 stores and is home to many mass-market to upper-range retailers in a very wide range of activity sectors. Anchored by Auchan, Darty, Zara, H&M or UGC cinemas, Les Quatre Temps is one of France’s main destinations for international newcomers entering the French shopping centre market, and a favored retail scene for innovative new concepts. Les Quatre Temps also accommodates a major restaurant hub welcoming the 150,000 employees working in the area. Located in front of Les Quatre Temps, Le CNIT shopping centre can be considered as an extension of the latter. Also a congress centre hosting a Hilton hotel, Le CNIT is a 26,000 sq. m. shopping centre home to mass-market to upper-range retailers (FNAC, Décathlon, Habitat, De Fursac, etc.).
FORUM DES HALLESLocated in the very heart of Paris, on the former site of a huge wholesale fresh products market, Le Forum des Halles is the largest shopping centre in Paris intra-muros. Located on the Paris region main public transport hub, Le Forum des Halles hosts 37 million consumers annually among which a significant proportion of suburban commuters. Totaling over 60,000 sq. m. and anchored by prominent retailers including Darty, Fnac, Go Sport, H&M, Forever 21 and New Look, this shopping centres boasts a great number of mass-market to mid-range retailers in a wide range of activity sectors. In the medium term Le Forum des Halles is expected to benefit from the entire redevelopment project of Les Halles district in what appears to be one of the most strategic operations of Paris municipality destined to become the heart of “Le Grand Paris” project. In the short term, the shopping centre will benefit from a further 15,000 sq.m. extension scheduled for opening in 2016.
CARROUSEL DU LOUVREOpened in 1993, this 11,000 underground shopping mall directly connected to the Louvre museum hosts 14 million visitors annually and is home to 50 mass-market to upper-range retailers in a wide range of activity sectors including restaurants, accessories and services. Recent openings include Le Printemps, a 2,500 sq. m. department store located on the site formerly occupied by Virgin Megastore and hosting some of the most exclusive brands (Bottega Veneta, Chopard, etc.) aiming at international visitors.
BEAUGRENELLELocated on Paris left bank, a few minutes away from the Eiffel tower, in a district boasting high-income households, Beaugrenelle went through a major redevelopment-extension project. Opened in 2013, the new Beaugrenelle shopping centre now comprises 50,000 sqm of retail and leisure, including a ten-screen Pathé multiplex cinema, a 4,600 sq.m. Marks & Spencer flagship store and a few trendy fashion retailers (Zadig & Voltaire, Maje, Sandro, etc.). Beaugrenelle is especially representative of the trend towards very large centres and the high-quality of supply and architecture.
ITALIE DEUXItalie Deux is the largest shopping centre on Paris Left Bank. This 56,000 sq. m. shopping centre anchored by prominent French players including Le Printemps department store, Carrefour Darty and Fnac, comprises 130 stores, is home to many mass-market fashion retailers and hosts 13 million visitors annually. Opened in 1976, Italie Deux has been renovated in 2013.

Data as of September 2015
Paris boasts several top rated restaurants such as L’Ambroisie on Place des Vosges or Alain Ducasse at Le Plaza Athénée. The recent opening of new ultra luxury hotels such as Mandarin Oriental on Rue Saint-Honoré in 2011 or the Peninsula on Avenue Kléber in 2014 should ensure Paris’s position as one of the world’s capitals of gastronomy.
In addition to luxury restaurants, Paris also boasts a great number of independent or franchised restaurants and cafés, making it possible to experience the full range of global cuisine at all price points.
Fast-food retail is among the fastest growing sector in the French capital. Indeed, changes in demand for main street shops in the food & beverage sector highlight the transformation of the spending habits of an urban and active population.
Fast-food retailers that recently expanded at a quick pace include asian food chains such as Sushi West ans Planet Sushi; Italian food chains such as Mezzo di Pasta; and American operators such as Subway and Starbucks. Fast-food retailers selling healthy and quality products, such as Exki, Jour and Cojean, have also been increasingly popular. They have often located in fairly good secondary spaces and shopping centres in office districts, such as La Défense or Paris CBD, or in major sectors under development or extension in Paris (e. g. ZAC Clichy-Batignolles, ZAC Paris Rive Gauche) and the inner suburbs (Le Trapèze in Boulogne-Billancourt).New brands and concepts entering the fast-food sector include Burger King and Costa Coffee in shopping centres and on the high streets, as well as the recent Marks & Spencer blitz of small format food shops (M&S Food) Several high-end food retailers and restaurants (Café Pouchkine, Le Palais des Thés) are also enlivening the Parisian market, at the same time that Lafayette Gourmet reopened on boulevard Haussmann ahead of the much anticipated Eataly.
