Monoprix: An Emblematic Department Store in Antibes
Although not extremely visible from outside, part of this fine-looking building (the former “Grand Hôtel”) is home to a well-liked French department store. Monoprix was founded in 1932 and is now established in more than 250 cities in France. Its motto has always been: to offer good and fine items in the city centre.
Since 1947, Monoprix has been selling its own-brand products within four main departments: food, beauty, clothing and home. Surprisingly in France, it is open on Sundays. It has become a bit of an icon, like Marks and Spencer in the UK or Woolworths in South Africa!
