Paris is in no short supply of tourist destinations, and one of them -- Galleries Lafayette -- is catering specifically to large Asian tour groups by opening a dedicated welcome center for them.
The popular shopping center wants to offer the best possible experience to shoppers, especially those visiting from foreign lands. Designed with sizable Asian tour groups in mind, the new welcome center is located across the street from the Galleries Lafayette flagship store on Boulevard Haussmann. The gold-painted center highlights a range of bestselling items featuring labels in multiple languages. Other bespoke customer service offerings include a dedicated app, a multilingual welcoming team of staff members, private rooms for special events and a tax refund system that's fully automated.
