Paris is a European shopping mecca, and the buzz and hype that surrounds the shopping experience here is like no other. Beautiful neighborhoods are bursting at the seams with designer fashion stores, and stylish people strutting the streets. It’s safe to say that Paris is a shopper’s dream.

Set up with over five major department stores and 17,500 + shops, the shops in Paris don’t sell clothes. They sell lifestyles. Though for those traveling Paris on a budget who can’t afford to shop at flagship stores,  the city is still packed with an amazing range of discount and outlet stores.

In the lead up to Paris fashion week, the following is a guide for Paris fashion you can afford. For those fond of fashion who don’t want to spend a fortune, these are the best discount stores and factory outlets. You’ll find top international designer brands at prices discounted from 30 to 80%!

Marques Avenue

Large out of town shopping mall stocking a range of designer and boutique clothing and accessories at a reduced price.

It’s a 1.5 hour commute by train to Troyes from Paris, so you should plan to dedicate a full day. You’ll find names like Hugo Boss, Etam and Naf-Naf, as well as outlet shops for many trendy French names.

Tati is a popular department store selling a range of cheap and cheerful clothes and accessories.

Location: 4-18 boulevard de Rochechouart, Paris, Île-de-France, France


Mistigriff is a national chain selling designer labels outlet style, with frequent 60-85% discounts. The labels have sometimes been removed – hence the “mistigriff” (mystery label) name – so come with a keen eye for a real bargain.

  16. Would be in Paris ending of June 2018. Where can I get quality yet affordable place to shop women clothings and shoes with a moderate Hôtel close by too. Thank you and looking forward to your feedback.

    • Hi Alice :) There are mid range hotels in almost every quarter of Paris, so I would chose where you want to shop, and then search for a hotel in the same quarter. If any of the shops we have listed above sound like you, you can copy and paste the location into Google, click on “Maps”, and then once you’ve got the map view there will be a button called “Nearby” click that and write “hotels”. It then brings up all of the hotels around that location with the prices :)

      Hope that helps!

  17. Hello I am traveling to Paris at the end of July. Where would be the best places to shop for clothes and shoes, scarves especially. I will being staying at the Pullman in Bercy

    • Hi Brandi, you’re staying in the 12th Arrondissement – in the same area you have Bercy Village which is worth a stop. This is an open-air plaza with a range of fashion and lifestyle boutiques. The 12th arrondissment is also right next to the 4th which has a great range of shopping – the Le Marais neighborhood in particular has a lot of trendy boutiques and vintage shops.

      In terms of scarves, Diwali Paris is a great shop in the 3rd district, also look for Monoprix and Catherine B.

      Have a great time in Paris!

  18. Thank you this was so helpful!

    • Awesome :) Have a great trip!

  20. Discount shopping calculation

    This app calculates the discount of a price quickly and easily. In addition, it allows to compare the quantity / price ratio, between 2 products, thus determining which product allows a greater savings. It also allows to store and share the operations performed, both by mail, WhatsApp, among others. Thus becoming a great tool infaltable in your mobile device.

    • Thanks for the heads up Juan, it sounds like a great app :)

  21. Going to Paris in May 2019 and looking forward to the shopping. Thank you so much for this info. Staying at the La Clef Louvre.

    • Fabulous Karen, I’m glad we could help out :) Have an amazing trip – happy shopping!

  22. Thank you so much for this! We are road tripping on our way to Paris and just got to our first stop and realized that I left all my bras except the one I’m wearing hanging in the laundry room!! I needed a Walmart like place to find something for the meantime!! You’re a lifesaver!!

    • You’re welcome Mamaj, so glad the post was helpful for you. I hope you found what you needed :)

      Enjoy Paris!

  23. My wife & I are going to Paris in June which would be 30 years since we last visited as crazy young backpackers doing everything on the cheap & dirty. Back then, we met a lovely Parisian girl who told us about a whole street of factory outlets like Bridge St Richmond was like decades ago, just off the metro stop called Alicia. It was our last day in Paris which was a Monday and nearly everything was closed. However, we do remember buying 2 Danial Hechtar suits & my wife brought 2 dresses which they shipped back to Oz for us. We just cannot remember where the street was and most maps dont show these outlets. Do you know if they are still around?

    • Hi there, Rue d’Alésia between metro Alésia and rue Didot used to have about 40 outlet stores, it’s been a number of years since I was last there though so I’m not sure if any stores have been affected by COVID shutdowns etc :)

      I hope you have a wonderful time in Paris!
