The phenomenon of factory shops, now much copied but never equalled, was born in Troyes. The city is the largest centre in Europe for this style of shopping. You will be able to find many branded articles at prices 30 to 50% less than in traditional shops. Grab yourself a bargain!

The 3 factory Shop centres

Marques Avenue, at Saint-Julien-les-Villas, in the southern part of town, showed the way in 1993. To the first premises opened (which were superbly-converted former warehouses), new buildings, all with huge car parks, came to be added all around, so that in time more and more shops, brands and visitors could be brought in. This complex now has 27,000 square metres of shop floor entirely devoted to bargains.
