As if Paris wasn't magical enough... in September, Anthropologie opened it's first French store. Of course, in Paris.
Anthropologie and Paris. What a perfect pairing!
The new store is located inside the Bazar de L'Hotel de Ville in Le Marais.
The address is 36 Rue de la Verrerie, 75004 Paris
I've always had a soft spot for Anthropologie. Ever since the first Anthropologie opened it's doors in Wayne, Pennsylvania in 1992. At the time, I lived very close to Wayne and worked in retail.
What was this wonder that appeared in my own backyard? It was like nothing else I'd see before. The location was an old Chevrolet dealership. The industrial building had great bones.
Once inside, a transformation occurred. The fragrance, the incredible visual array, the café, the fountain...it was a feast for the senses! Friends of mine raved! They dreamed of moving in! All agreed that the ideal set-up would be to live in Anthropologie.
That was the idea behind the brand. Create a 'lifestyle' experience. Master the art of making the customer want to take a piece of Anthropologie home...every visit.
I have not been to the new Anthropologie in Paris. It is definitely on my list! I can't wait to see the French version of one of my favorite stores.
Full disclosure...I now work at Anthropologie. I am thrilled to say that I still have a soft spot for Anthropologie. The truth is...it's an amazing company. I am continually impressed with how they operate. I love my job!
Thanks for reading. More tomorrow.
