Galeries Lafayette guarantees snow this Christmas

French department store Galeries Lafayette will guarantee its customers a white Christmas, after investing in eight snow makers for the first time this year.

Galeries Lafayette's eight snow makers will blow snow at over 3,000 revolutions per minute, covering the pavements of Boulevard Haussmann at nightfall throughout December.

The department store will also put on a free bus service to take Parisians to Galeries Lafayette to make their Christmas purchases. The 46-seater bus, which will run from 10am to 6pm from December 5-19, is designed to take the stress out of shopping by avoiding the need to park the car.

Galeries Lafayette will set up five Christmas markets on the pavement of Lafayette Maison, decorated in the department store's colours and accompanied by traditional Christmas songs.
