Parisian wonderland

A new concept store is shaking the retail world. Called Merci and created by Bernard and Marie-France Cohen (founders and ex-owners of Bonpoint), the store is located near Bastille at the border of Le Marais. At Merci there is something for every wallet and every age; for children there is a selection of products from Bonpoint at 30 to 40% off. A large amount of items are custom-made for the store and all the profits, (production costs deducted), are going to a children’s charity in Madagascar. Everyone is going to Merci or is speaking about it. That proves that creative new projects can be extremely successful even in hard times. Merci, 111 Boulevard Beaumarchais, 75003 Paris - Tel +33-55353390.
