Main Shopping Streets

Avenue Montaigne

Hours: Open 24 hours daily; store hours vary

Along shaded, tree-lined sidewalks, visitors will find what feels like an extension of the Champs-Élysées, but Avenue Montaigne is actually just another shopping street in the luxurious Golden Triangle district. High-end clothing and goods can be found throughout this opulent district, and Avenue Montaigne is no exception. With shops like Prada, Jimmy Choo, and Versace lining this corridor, there are certainly wonderful shopping opportunities here. 

Stores include:




Jimmy Choo



Andy’s Notes:

Located very near the Champs-Élysées and the Arc de Tríomphe, shoppers will find this corridor to be a little less-crowded than its neighboring street during business hours.  

Boulevard Haussmann

Hours: Monday through Saturday, 9:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m.; Sunday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The Boulevard Haussmann is a wide, tree-shaded street created by Napoleon III which runs for a mile and a half through the Haussmann-Saint-Lazare-Opéra district of Paris. It is also home to the Art Nouveau Galeries Lafayette, which was founded in 1912 and is home to department stores by some of the largest brands in the world. From fashion brands to luxury home decor and perfectly designed home goods, shoppers can find everything at their fingertips here. 

Stores include: 

La Cave

David Yurman

Galeries Lafayette

Karl Lagerfeld


Andy’s Notes:

Visit La Cave for any rare vintage or hard-to-find wines you can dream of among their wide inventory of both French and imported wines.

Boulevard Saint Germain

Hours: Monday through Sunday, 24 hours; store hours vary

Stretching just over two miles long, Boulevard Saint-Germain is among the longest shopping corridors in Paris. The avenue that is bookended by Pont de Sully in the east and Pont de la Concorde in the west is a shady, tree-lined shopping oasis that crosses three arrondissements. There are numerous flagship stores dotted along the street and seemingly endless high-end stores to browse. Though the corridor is filled with chic designers and cafés, this boulevard for the cool and hip is also one of fashionable substance. Those who are familiar with French designers will find local flair among internationally known fashion houses. 

Stores include:

The Kooples

Ralph Lauren

Sonia Rykiel

Karl Lagerfeld

Andy’s Notes:

To pick up a sweater or item of quintessential Parisian clothing, visit Sonia Rykiel. The French writer and designer was named the “Queen of Knits” and became famous for her Poor Boy sweater. 


Hours: Open daily, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

If there is one shopping corridor most people think of when visiting Paris, it’s likely the famous Champs-Élysées. The luxury, tree-lined shopping street is filled with shops ranging from Cartier and Louis Vuitton to Chanel and Hugo Boss. One of the most expensive areas of Paris to shop, the Champs-Élysées is a beautiful place to stroll and window shop — especially since the one-and-a-quarter-mile stretch leads to the Arc de Tríomphe, which is a must-see while in the City of Light.

Stores include:






Louis Vuitton

Andy’s Notes:

Champs-Élysées tends to be one of the busiest areas for visiting travelers, so to simply see the street and the famous boutiques, consider walking the stretch before or after the shops generally close. 

Palais Royal

Hours: 24 hours daily; store hours vary

Located within 17th-century arcades, the shops of this corridor border the Palais Royal Garden. This quiet, peaceful space features highly manicured trees, roses, and a central fountain within the garden. Customers can stroll under the shelter of the arcades with shops ranging from Stella McCartney and Rick Owens to Delvaux and Gabrielle Geppert. From clothing to beautiful antiques, this luxurious corner of Paris feels almost hidden despite its central location.

Stores include:

Corto Moltedo

Gabrielle Geppert

Manolo Blahnik

Stella McCartney

Marc Jacobs

Andy’s Notes:

Step into Gabrielle Geppert for a beautiful selection of highly curated vintage clothing and accessories for a piece of Paris at a fair price.

Rue de Charonne

Hours: Open 24 hour daily; store hours vary

Located along a winding street near the Place de la Bastille, Rue de Charonne stretches across the entire 11th Arrondissement and is what feels like the last truly authentic shopping corridor in Paris. Filled with chic designers, artists, and underground bars and bistros, this is a must-visit shopping corridor for local, independently-owned boutiques. Visitors will find clothing stores, home decor stores, and so much more. Spend the day shopping here and go with the intention of taking time to browse so as not to miss a thing here. 

Stores include:

Boutique Maison Labiche




Andy’s Notes:

For unusual statement accessories visit So We Are. Sessùn is a stunning shop with beautiful clothing as well, making it a must-see while shopping the Rue de Charonne.

Rue De Rivoli

Hours: Monday through Sunday, 24 hours; store hours vary

Named for one of Napoleon’s earliest victories against the Austrian army in 1797, the Rue de Rivoli stretches nearly two miles long and is one of the most famous shopping streets of Paris. The beautiful shopping corridor runs through Le Marais, which is a historic district filled with grand, formerly aristocratic buildings and considered one of the trendiest areas in Paris. Along with well-known brands like Burberry, Lacoste, and Levi’s, the street also hosts the popular underground shopping mall, the Carrousel du Louvre. Additionally, here you will find Le BHV Marais, one of the biggest department stores in Paris with clothing, items for home décor, gourmet goods, and lots more. Along this route, shoppers will find everything from high-end luxury to dollar stores and souvenir shops, so it’s certainly an area worth experiencing for a wide variety of shopping. 

Stores include: 





Salvatore Ferragamo

Tilt Vintage

Andy’s Notes:

The Carrousel du Louvre is also an entry point to the Louvre Museum that is often underutilized. 

Rue du Commerce

Hours: Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.

This tree-lined one-way street is one of Paris’s best under-the-radar shopping corridors, and it’s just around the corner from the Eiffel Tower. The rue du Commerce features more than 100 boutique shops and skips over many of the larger brands like Chanel and Louis Vuitton that shoppers will find in well-known shopping corridors. Browse through the many shops that feature smaller designers or even vintage pieces for independent shopping in Paris without the excessive price tag. 

Stores include: 



Sud Express


Andy’s Notes:

For trendy pieces at a fraction of the cost, stop by Sud Express for all things women’s clothing and shoes. There is truly something for everyone along Rue du Commerce.

Rue Saint-Honoré

Hours: Open 24 hours daily; store hours vary

Rue Saint-Honoré runs parallel to the Tuileries Gardens and is a center for high fashion and design. The shopping corridor includes some of the most famous classic fashion designers like Hermès as well as Gucci, Valentino, and Stella McCartney. Wander along the storefronts for a wide variety of shopping ranging from luxury clothing to boutique home goods. The area is named for church Saint-Honoré which once stood within the cloisters of its namesake. Today, the streets runs just over a mile, roughly one block further than the Musée de l’Orangerie.

Stores include:





Andy’s Notes:

Step inside Graff for a beautiful display of jewelry inside an impressive architectural structure, too.
