Louis Vuitton Closes Paris Stories Early To Save Bags For Christmas
Louis Vuitton is taking some unusual steps to preserve its stocks for the coming holiday shopping. Reuters reports that the luxury brand will be closing its Parisian stores an hour early from now through December 1 to slow down the depletion of its luxury handbags and other leather goods before the pre-Christmas rush. The Parisian stores are a magnet for Japanese, Chinese and Russian buyers interested in picking up the latest styles. The bags are often cheaper in Paris than they would be in their home country's stores. The article says that Vuitton boutiques within department stores Bon Marche, Printemps Haussmann and Galeries Lafayette will not be affected.
