LE BHV MARAIS, the 1st department store in Paris to open on Sundays, is celebrating 160 years of creation and innovation. The event is a fantastic opportunity to celebrate its achievements and pay homage to the store’s unique history and location.

Creative, inspirational and laid-back, LE BHV MARAIS has always been a dynamic part of central Paris since it was founded by François Xavier Ruel in 1856.

Urban, modern and creative, it is the only Parisian Lifestyle department store where you can find such a diversity under one roof!

Paris’ most loved department store, with a retail space of 45,000m², LE BHV MARAIS is the only multi-specialist department store with everything you could ever need! Fashion, beauty, homeware, food, leisure activities, DIY...the store continues to surprise and delight its visitors with a selection of brands and amazing cutting-edge articles that are constantly renewed.

Located in the heart of Paris, the store reflects the diversity of the Marais district: unique throughout the world, this epicentre of trends, cosmopolitan and inspiring, is the very essence of a Paris in constant motion.

A key venue for new experiences and interactions, LE BHV MARAIS is the new shopping destination, not to be missed.

LE BHV MARAIS, the largest toolbox in Paris, continues to reinvent itself whilst staying true to its DNA. With over 54,000 products, the legendary store basement serves as new inspiration for all things DIY, offering all the latest tools and decorating trends.

The ground and 1st floors showcase fresh, cutting-edge fashion, with exclusive concept stores: Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, Top Shop and more, leading names in Beauty and Accessories, and a new Fashion Sport department.
