La Grande Epicerie de Paris Launches its Own-Label Products
New premises at the corner of rue du Bac and rue de Sèvres would accommodate Le Bon Marché's "food counter" that opened in 1923, offering the finest teas and preserves, a first for a department store. Country-themed exhibitions and presentations were organized, with fresh produce being showcased to create a unique array. It wasn’t until 1978, however, that La Grande Epicerie de Paris was born, positioning itself as a genuine local supermarket for food aficionados on the Rive Gauche.
After the LVMH group took over Le Bon Marché, the latter adopted a new market positioning. It became a high-end, resolutely Parisian store that reflected a certain Rive Gauche vibe.
Since 1988, La Grande Epicerie de Paris, a subsidiary of Le Bon Marché Rive Gauche, has become one of the capital's leading food stores.
In 1999, following a complete revamp of its departments and the introduction of a new graphic identity, shopping at La Grande Epicerie de Paris gained a reputation as “an unmissable treat, an unadulterated delight, and a unique experience”. A leading light in the world of Parisian gastronomy, it attracts people from all over the world in search of exceptional quality and taste.
