Does Paris have a Factory Outlet? Oui!

Everybody knows The most prestigious streets for shopping in Paris is Avenue des Champs Elysées. Also not to forget The most luxury department stores, Gallery Lafayette & Printemps. For some shoppers who seeking less price for top designers (including you!), factory outlets can’t be avoided. Who can’t resist, you can buy designers items with low price 30% minimum where the place is so convenience, the restaurants & cafes just next door, more varieties collections, user-friendly amenities and kids.

Oui! Paris has 3 factory outlets!

 La Vallée Village – Val d’Europe.

This is my favorite factory outlet cause its very easy fast access from Paris and where I live. La Vallée Village, Chic Outlet Shopping located approximately 35-45 minutes outside of Paris and next to Disneyland. The collection Chic Outlet Shopping Villages is defined by its luxury brands, charming open-air ‘village’ setting with a welcoming and superior service not least exceptional value for money. If you are familiar retail price of Lancel, Lacoste, Burberry, Givenchy, D&G, Furla, Jimmy Choo, kenzo, etc. You will be impressed how good the price you’ve spent there.

This is not an ordinary factory outlet. The brands mostly offer their authentic previous seasons collections price reduced by minimum 30% or even more. The Village also has tax free shopping service. When you make a purchase of €175,01 or more (I’m sure you will spend more!) at any boutique displaying tax-free shopping signs, simply ask for a tax-free shopping cheque.

The Village open 7 days a week, 10h-20h. Heaven heh!
