Tell me a story !

Story is a radical concept store that, like a magazine, renews its concept every 6 to 8 weeks.

The concept

magasin

In this 185 square-metre area, a new story is recounted to customers every 2 months: holidays, design, colours, love, etc.

The merchandising and the offer are fully modified, always on a top-of-the-range product line: products of creators, delicatessen products and models in limited editions. The offer is always promoted and driven by in-store workshops.

TO DO DURING THE VISIT

Follow on social media

Story opened its doors on 27 April after a two-month closure.

Via its Instagram account, its customers can try and guess the next theme.

Discovering a new story

Whenever it reopens, the retailer proposes a new story, a new magazine: well-being, technology or freshness for instance.

Taking advantage of partnerships

On each theme, Story partners a brand or retail chain to benefit from its expertise in the field. For instance, Yahoo experts have created digital special-interest magazines: beauty, style, technology, health or even travel.

Finding an idea for a gift

If the theme inspires you, you’ll have no difficulty finding a gift to take back to France. The retail offering covers all types of need: jewellery, beauty products, books or bicycles for instance.

Discovering innovative products

With an upmarket offering, one can quite often unearth a surprising product, like these storage pentagons designed by Tim Karoleff.
