The promise: « At Galeries Lafayette, fashion is alive »
Galeries Lafayette is the most happening shopping destination in Paris. The department store has constantly reflected the styles of the times through a sophisticated selection of brands, ranging from the
most prestigious to the most affordable. Paris is the fashion capital of the world, and Galeries Lafayette is fashion's premier showcase, which offers a selection of 2,500 creative brands spread over 70,000 square-meters, and graced by a 33 meter-high neo-byzantine dome built in 1912. The store, recognized and acclaimed around the world, is Paris' second most visited attraction after the Louvre.
Fashion as a theatre
Galeries Lafayette spanned the last century, capturing the spirit of the times with a huge sense of theatricality. It didn't take them long to realize that having a great presentation and an exceptional shopping experience are essential to making customers want to shop there.
Galeries Lafayette has designed a wide range of personal services to give customers the ultimate fashion experience while making it easier and more enjoyable for them to shop.
VIP welcomes, personal shopping, makeovers and image enhancement (by appointment in a private salon), express delivery and alterations, multilingual store guides, Marc Le Bihan opticians, cobbler and shoe shiner, pushchairs and wheelchairs available to borrow, taxi booking service and car parking are just some of the little extras that make shopping at Galeries Lafayette Paris Haussmann stress-free.
Galeries Lafayette services are also available in the beauty department: Chanel and Decleor beauty salons, Franck Provost and Jean-Marc Maniatis hairdressing salons, and the Mavala hand-care salon provide relaxation and pampering.
In homeware, cooking lessons by the Atelier des Chefs and home improvement lessons by the Atelier de l'Archi have been put together as a tailored response to customer expectations. Specific services have also been designed to improve the shopping experience of non-French customers, including a multilingual reception, three tax refund areas (for individuals and groups), fashion shows and international delivery. A corporate gifts service is also available to businesses.
La Suite Galeries Lafayette
The latest example of the retailer's ability to satisfy ever-more demanding customers is the opening of a private 400 sq m apartment on the sixth floor of the Paris Haussmann store: La Suite Galeries Lafayette. This exceptional space combines bespoke shopping and lifestyle services, while offering a direct view of the Paris skyline and Sacré-Coeur. La Suite provides the most comfortable and convenient shopping experience. Discrete and tactful stylists share their skills and eye for fashion.

La Suite also goes the extra mile for all its guests: luxury refreshments, wellbeing with a beauty salon, alterations service, express delivery and tax refunds, and an exclusive address book...
