Galeries Lafayette celebrates Haussmann flagship’s birthday
What: the birthday of the first Galeries Lafayette store
Why it is important: Galeries Lafayette Haussmann flagship is a landmark that is very much part of the Parisian, and French, culture
French department store Galeries Lafayette celebrated its 127th anniversary on 15 January. On that day in 1894, founders Alphonse Kahn and Théophile Bader opened their first “Aux Galeries Lafayette” store. Their innovative vision continues to shine today across the group’s large store network, and especially at the Haussmann flagship store. Congratulations!
