Merci est un magasin qui fonctionne comme un magazine

Merci was created in March 2009, in the heart of the historic Haut-Marais district. The founders, Bernard and Marie-France Cohen, realised that Paris lacked a place which brought together the best in fashion, design, household goods, and friendly eating options.

urban-market-004-2BDMerci’s aim is to bring together, under one roof, products and customers who traditionally have not had the chance to meet : vintage furniture or contemporary creations; emerging new fashion brands or already-recognised collections; impulse buys, affordable for all or much rarer pieces, sometimes in limited editions.

Fashionistas come from all over the world, local residents, young or not-so-young, students with their appetites already whetted. Small budgets, or large projects: there’s something for everyone at MERCI.

Merci calls this approach “The One and The Other” : because we don’t want to have to choose between traditional or modern, local or international, simple or costly, mass-produced or individually made, but to bring them all together, and present the best of each world.

10-15-Photo-Installation-JUST-A-BULB-1-BDMerci is a shop which works like a magazine. Over 15 exhibitions/events around a selection, and an original theatrical design in harmony with the year, have transformed the place into a “store-destination”. The exhibitions’ themes put over the merci point of view on a trend, a change in society, the work of a designer or an irresistible take on a project.

The historic building, which was a wallpaper factory for 150 years, extends over more than 1500 sq. m, with a paved courtyard and a spectacular glass roof : three floors of light, inspiring space. The architect Valérie Mazérat has brought new life to this sleeping place : simple, generous, curious, exciting.
