BazarChic sold to Groupe Galeries Lafayette

Galeries Lafayette Group continues its omnichannel transformation by intergrating Bazarchic, online private sale specialist

With a 6.4 million member community stronghold, BazarChic is one of the pioneers of private sales in France, and a reference in e commerce, specializing in selective sales events of products of fashion and lifestyle’s major brands. Since 2006, BazarChic has built its reputation on the consistency of its offer, the attractiveness of its prices - whilst maintaining a rarity effect - and the quality of its customer service, which has allowed it to gain the trust of over 800 brands.

This acquisition allows the Galeries Lafayette group to strengthen its omnichannel strategy, by adding a digital sales platform to complement its fashion activities, and more specifically its Galeries Lafayette Outlet physical stores.

Liberty Verny, co-founder and CEO of BazarChic, will remain at the head of the company. 

Commenting on this announcement, Philippe Houzé, Executive Chairman of the Galeries Lafayette group, declared: « As our department store business is focused on its omnichannel transformation, we are delighted that BazarChic joins our Group. Liberty Verny and Nathalie Gillier have founded and developed a major French player in e-commerce, and we are convinced that together we will write a new chapter of its history. »
