10 Stores to Fly to Paris For

Sure, the croissants, the macarons, and the Eiffel Tower aren't terrible—but we really visit Paris for the shopping. These 10 stores will surprise, delight and inspire you to spend lots of money. Because after all, you're on vacation!

Le Bon Marché

Yes, you should peruse the clothing section of this 160-year-old department store—they've got an entire section devoted to designer lingerie lines, including Marni!—but it's really the epicerie that makes me happy. Stocked with fresh juices, the best charcuterie, dozens upon dozens of olive varieties, it's fun to stop by and just walk around. Pick up a sandwich, some chocolates and sit in the park nearby, watching locals mill about this very real (if very fancy) neighborhood.
