Galeries Lafayette is seeing a return from international customers
What: With an improvement in the health situation in the past few months, foreign tourists have been returning to Paris and visiting department stores.
Why is it important: The only downside is the continued absence of Chinese customers, but Alexandre Liot, director of Galeries Lafayette states that Asia, apart from China is starting to travel again and as soon as people can go out, the Paris destination remains popular. As a result, activity will remain below-average levels for the department store this year.
The department store sector must now evolve, adapt to new consumption patterns, and seek to attract new customers in order precisely to qualify the dependency on this or that clientele. Galeries Lafayettes Hausmann has thus reorganized the store and will open a temple of well-being, a real novelty for the legendary address which aims to retain local customers and attract international customers.
