Bernard and Marie-France Cohen, the founders and ex-owners of the luxury French brand Bonpoint did not feel like retiring. So they opened a new concept store in Paris simply named Merci.
The purpose ? All the profits, after production costs are deducted, will go to a children's charity in Madagascar.
So you will make a great donation while you are making a great shopping for your kids with April Showers and even collections from Bonpoint with big discounts. You will also get presents for you with a flower shop filled with seasonal blooms and a perfume bar with the fragrances of Annick Goutal or decorate your interior with home supplies
Enjoy! I will certainly do next summer in Paris!
Merci, 111 Boulevard Beaumarchais in the Marais (11th arrondissement).
