Merci, Paris

Attitude and Gratitude

Merci in Paris is a favourite space for finer modernconscious
tastes.

Owners
Bernard and Marie-France Cohen (the founders of children’s line Bonpoint)
opened the shop in an old factory building in the Haute Marais in 2009.

Beyond
its beautiful presentations and objects with heartfelt stories, what sets
Merci apart is its deeper intention. Just as its name implies, the philosophy
of the store is built on the infrastructure of generosity. Products are consciously sourced and all
profits are given to chosen charities. It seems like a paradox in our times but
these are the retail solutions we are looking for tomorrow. Brands that really understand
their need to give back. Becoming responsible without being too worthy. That
way we are in a space where we can enjoy shopping for what we need in tandem with
what we really love.
