THE WHAT? Galeries Lafayette Haussman is gearing up to unveil what it claims to be Europe’s first space to be dedicated entirely to wellness.
THE DETAILS The 3,000 sq m floor in the centre of the department store’s main Cupola building will be unveiled this summer.
The space will cater for both men and women and be split equally between products and services. Many of the brands present will be available exclusively via the retailer, some entering the French market for the first time.
THE WHY? Today’s consumer expectations are increasingly wellness-orientated and this high-potential market has doubled in size globally over the last four years, the French department store operator said in a statement. Galeries Lafayette Hausmann is hoping to become Paris’ must-visit wellness destination.
Alexandre Liot, General Manager of Galeries Lafayette Haussman, reveals, “We firmly believe that the physical store is more important than ever, as long as it is able to adapt to customer expectations and offer the extra spark that is so essential to their in-store experience.”
