Greetings from your team at Hotel Paris France and very best wishes for a peaceful and prosperous New Year! At the start of the year the city is a thrilling destination for shoppers who come from all over the world for the Paris winter sales. Plan a trip to the sales and explore shopping areas like Forum des Halles, the Rue de Rivoli and the Marais, all of which are easy to reach from Hotel Paris France.
The Paris winter sales are a great opportunity for you to stock up on household favourites or choose gorgeous designer clothing at the lowest possible prices. With discounts of as much as 50% on many of the best-selling brands and luxury products in department stores and exclusive boutiques you’ll save and have fun at the same time.
Fashion fans and locals have something in common – they all know the advantages of browsing the Paris Shopping guide before setting out for the winter sales. Do yourself a favour and pick up a copy of this style setter’s bible, and be one step ahead of the crowds. Not only is it an invaluable aid in locating the boutiques and stores that you want to visit; the guide has area by area shopping itineraries and a handy address book.

Forum des Halles is the biggest shopping mall in the city. This stylish shopping centre is mainly under street level, and is the ideal choice for those who like to shop as a family. High street favourites like Mango, Zara and H&M appeal to mothers as well as daughters, and the boys will love finding the latest games at discount prices at Zappos on level two or cool watches at Swatch.
Check out Rue de Rivoli with your Paris Shopping Book. This trendy street is just a short distance from Les Halles and a short walk across to Carrousel de Louvre where top department store Printemps is a popular choice during the winter sales.
Close to the hotel, the Marais is one of the most elegant and eclectic parts of the city and its many ‘one of a kind’ or concept stores appeal to a wide clientele. Find a massive selection of stylish Paris inspired items at Les Vignoles, or look for great winter sales offers at leather goods boutique Florian Denicourt and children’s store Petit Pan.
