Geneva shops and boutiques
Geneva is associated with the headquarters of international organizations, reliable banks, CERN and the Hadron Collider, modern medicine, and the most accurate Swiss watches. Then there are shops located compactly on the embankments of Lake Geneva.
Politicians, businessmen and academics come here for conferences, exhibitions or business meetings. They usually do not have much time for shopping, and the requirements for service and the goods themselves are high. Therefore, Geneva stores select high-quality and elegant products for their collections to match their respectable visitors..
In recent years, the number of shoppers in the city has increased, which is why stores are increasing in size. This applies, for example, to Fendi, Boss, Breguet. And Louis Vuitton has built a new multi-storey building for itself. There were also boutiques of democratic brands - Marks & Spencer, Zara, in addition to the earlier Promod and H&M.
Popular retail outlets
- The rue du Marche and rue du Rhone streets are not very crowded, as the prices in their boutiques correspond to the luxury of the offered collections. The boutiques of the first street sell mainly clothes, while the second is filled with more watch and jewelry stores - Cartier, Les Ambassadeurs, Bvlgari. Another shopping street, Confederation, is much more popular. These three trade arteries are located on the shores of Lake Geneva and flow smoothly into one another. Walking through them does not tire you and delivers a lot of aesthetic delight..
- The Drake Store and Drake Store Outlet are located on the rue des Alpes and are located next to each other. The first store is a multi-brand one and offers items from the most luxurious brands of the latest season. And the second is a very unusual store. It offers the most popular models of yesteryear from the legendary brands Dior, Gucci, Prada, Fendi, Missoni, YSL and others at discounted prices. Agree that this is different from the assortment of most outlets selling stale items.
- Many finds are hidden by small shops with signs "soldes / vendu". These are either thrift shops or pawnshops; they should not be confused with second-hand shops. The clothes are often new and luxurious, and the prices are pleasant. There are especially many such shops in the area of Mont Blanc and Cornavin streets..
- It is impossible to forget that Switzerland is famous for its watches in Geneva. Advertisements for watches follow the guests of the city everywhere. Swiss watches only become more expensive over time, so it is better to buy them new in company stores. Les Ambassadeurs is a well-known chain of watches and jewelry stores. In Geneva, the store is located on the rue du Rhone. Watches of only elite brands are presented in its windows. Experienced consultants will help you choose a model, no matter how capricious the client is. On the same street, there is the Jaeger-leCoultre monoboutique. Another chain - Bucherer - in the store on rue Du Mont-Blanc, along with expensive watches, offers more or less affordable.
