As you learned in your textbook, the French, like the Americans, do their shopping in small boutiques, department stores, and large stores similar to Walmart. In the 18th century, the precursors to malls (grandes surfaces) were born as small, covered streets of stores called galeries marchandes. The Galerie Vivienne, found in the second arrondissement, is one of the most famous. The 19th century saw the development of large, elegant department stores like the famous Galeries Lafayette in Paris. In the 1960s, the supermarché was expanded to the hypermarché … a huge, mall-like store where you can buy anything from household items to food to clothing.
