100,000 visitors are expected through the doors at Galeries Lafayette for their Winter Sale which officially starts on 7 January 2015. By listing on Airbnb, six people from anywhere in the world, including Australia, will have the opportunity to enter Galeries Lafayette at 8pm the previous night and enjoy a totally unique shopping experience. This includes a tour of the department store, tailored advice from personal shoppers and a 200€ voucher, a first look at sale items and a luxurious dinner. If the excitement is not too much, they will then be able to sleep in comfortable beds under the famous, one hundred year old Dome.
The next morning, after a typical French breakfast, they will take part in the official launch of the Sale and then make their purchases before heading home.
Airbnb offers more than 1 million listings worldwide. Galeries Lafayette is the latest addition as part of Airbnb's 'A Night At' initiative, designed to unlock places around the world where it's never before been possible to spend the night. So far, these have included an IKEA store in Australia, a KLM plane in Amsterdam, and a Waterstones book store in the UK.
How to win a spot?
For a chance to win this ultimate shopping experience, visit the Galeries Lafayette's listing on Airbnb no later than December 28th (10:00am AEST) and tell the host why you would like to spend the night in this temple of fashion.
