Nantes is full of shopping addresses: from big brands to small addresses appreciated for their original objects, from local shops to flea markets…
The official shops of the Voyage à Nantes
If you want traditional
A term entirely dedicated to shopping in Nantes: crébillonner, derived from the famous rue Crébillon, which remains one of the leading shopping streets in Nantes, home to many major retailers. A few steps away, rue Crébillon leads naturally to the Passage Pommeraye, one of the few covered passages in Europe on three levels, where you can combine the discovery of the architectural heritage with shopping.
After crebillon, the Nantais also goes to “chez Decré”, the city’s first department stores’ in 1931, which has now become the Galerie Lafayette!
