Paris has many surprises when it comes to shopping. There is such a great selection of places to go, but one of my long standing favourites is the “Italie 2” shopping centre, located at Place d’Italie in the 13ᵉ arrondissement of Paris.
It’s a charming place where many Parisians go to do their shopping and where great bargains are to be found. With over 120 stores, this shopping centre offers a fantastic variety of products and services all conveniently located under the same roof.
A lot of the traditional high street names are there – the upmarket Printemps department store that covers an amazing 2 enormous floors, -My favourite perfume store Sephora and plenty other shops that include Adidas, Fnac, Zara, Minnelli , Celio, Soleil Sucré, Rituals, Acessorize, Agatha, The Body Shop… There are also lots of jewellery and mega big sports stores like “Go Sport”. You will definitely find what you are looking for here. And the choice of restaurants is really good too.
Italie 2 offers a variety of services for you to do your shopping comfortably. When you arrive, go to the information desk when you can pick up the “Shopping Guide” that allows you to see at a glance, all the shops and their location in the centre.
If you desire a change in style or simply good fashion advice for what to wear for a special occasion, Italie 2 offers a personal shopper service that will help you find the ideal product in tune with the latest trends. If you need a rest, there are areas available on the high and low level floors where you can also recharge your mobile phone ! You can see that this service is really appreciated and used.
Finally, tourists from outside the EU have the possibility to shop Tax Free – the VAT refund company “Premier Tax Free” has launched a service that allows tourists to shop in several shops in the centre to reach the minimum spend required of 175€ to qualify to receive a Tax refund form. Normally, you have to spend 175€ in the same shop – but in Italie 2 shopping centre, you are able to shop in all the shops to reach this limit. – So, go ahead, do some shopping here – great value and Tax Free as well!
