It’s a sure bet for smart and stylish shopping during the 2018 sales in Paris.

Shopping at the Châtelet-les-Halles mall

Another favorite spot for shoppers in search of great deals during the sales is the shopping center at Châtelet-Les-Halles, which has all the latest hot brands, as well as a large movie theater and restaurants. This shopping center is a snap to reach by public transit, making it all the more perfect for sale hunters. However, you should be prepared for an incredibly dense crowd during the sales period.

The easiest way to get to the 2018 sales on Rue de Rivoli in Paris is to take Métro line 1 to the Louvre-Rivoli stop or lines 1, 4, 7, 11 or 14 to the Châtelet stop.

Bercy Village: sales in the great outdoors

This open-air shopping center in the 12th arrondissement on Cour Saint Émilion is mainly a destination for home furnishings, fine foods and creative hobbies. It happens to be an extremely pleasant place to shop the sales because you can enjoy fresh air and quiet, far from the noise of cars, and spend time on the patios of the numerous bars and restaurants.

Bercy Village awaits you on the banks of the Seine in southeast Paris. The Bercy Métro stop off lines 6 and 14, is a half-mile from the shopping center. You can also exit line 14 at the Bibliothèque François-Mitterrand stop.
