Galeries Lafayette department store will open in the second half of 2019.
This new flagship will reinforce Galeries Lafayette’s territorial network in the heart of the capital and further enrich the shopping center’s premium and lifestyle offer.
This flagship store perfectly matches the ongoing reinvention strategy of the Galeries Lafayette French network, with a more locally anchored, omnichannel and experiential concept, while being very complementary to current and future Galeries Lafayette locations in the capital. This store will allow the brand to specifically address clients in Western Paris, thanks to a relevant range of its premium and lifestyle Fashion offer.
Commenting on this announcement, Olivier Bron, Operations Director of Galeries Lafayette and BHV MARAIS, said: "This opening once again illustrates our strong ambitions to reinvent our French network and will significantly strengthen our presence in the capital. Galeries Lafayette Beaugrenelle will offer a new model for the "local department store", presenting in a compact space the best of our Fashion selection, paired with our omnichannel services to better attend to our clients in Western Paris."
To welcome this new flagship - which will be rolled out on 8 000 sq.m GLA and four floors - the atrium of the Panoramic isle will be redesigned and magnified by the architect Valode & Pistre. The iconic kaleidoscope pattern of the canopy will be extended on the two upper levels of the building. Development works will begin at the end of 2018 aiming for an opening in the second half of 2019. Galeries Lafayette will occupy the space previously dedicated to Marks & Spencer, enriching Beaugrenelle's premium and lifestyle offer.
