And read about their story below from how they formed the business back in 2009:
'Merci is a place created in March 2009 in the heart of the historic district of Haut-Marais. Bernard and Marie-France Cohen, founders of BONPOINT the children's fashion label, realized that Paris lacked a place which would bring together the best of the world of fashion, of design, of household goods with welcome refreshment areas.
A business established in the heart of its region and of its country, Merci has already created more than 70 permanent jobs. Merci is, moreover, very pleased to act as a developer or launch-pad to the young designers who, thanks to this sounding-board, can make themselves known to the many customers and international personalities who visit Merci.
Merci is a commercial enterprise "like any other company" founded by shareholders "unlike any other shareholders". The founders decided that the proceeds of this investment would serve to fund an endowment paying for educational projects and development in south-west Madagascar.
Bernard and Marie France Cohen wanted to say MERCI to life, MERCI to the talents and to the designers who made this success possible. It is this success which makes their generosity possible.
In 2013, Marie-France Cohen passed on the torch
The current Merci team has kept up the commitment and the founders’ original dream by contributing year on year to the foundation.
Thanks to our clients who make this project possible.'
