The official Voyage stores in Nantes

If we want traditional

An entire term dedicated to shopping in Nantes: crébillonner, coming from the famous rue Crébillon which continues to be one of the main places to shop in Nantes, bringing together many big brands. A few steps away, rue Crébillon naturally leads to the Pommeraye Passone of the rare covered passages in Europe on 3 levels, where you can combine the discovery of architectural heritage and shopping.

After much excitement, the Nantes also went to “Chez Decré”, the first large department store in the city in 1931, which today has become the Lafayette Galleries !
