PARIS — As it prepares to celebrate the 100th anniversary of its iconic glass dome in October, French department store operator Galeries Lafayette is busy renovating its sprawling Boulevard Haussmann flagship to make sure it remains one of the city’s top tourist attractions.
Galeries Lafayette plans to spend 85 million euros, or $104 million at current exchange, on the three-year renovations, which kicked off this spring. They are part of a total investment of 800 million euros, or $977 million, in its store network by 2017, said Paul Delaoutre, chief executive officer of the department stores division of Galeries Lafayette.
