The shops are unique and make it possible to provide a high quality, personalised attraction for customers

Sophie Billa, Manager of the Trade, Innovation and Tourism department at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Lyon

Every two years, the Lyon Shop & Design competition run by the Lyon Chamber of Commerce and Industry rewards those stores which have been most creative in this field… and the competition is intense!

What was the motivation behind the creation of the Lyon Shop & Design competition?

Today, the town centres of European capital cities are becoming to look more like one another as they're all home to the same international store chains. The idea from the Lyon Chamber of Commerce and Industry in 2004 was to encourage merchants, designers and architects to work more closely together to ensure that the town centres urban areas become distinctive, thanks to the creative aspects of their shops, hotels and restaurants.

 

What does the competition involve and how is it distinctive?

Every two years, the Lyon Shop & Design competition run by Lyon Chamber of Commerce and Industry rewards those stores which have been most creative in the this field… and the competition is intense!
What makes this competition so exciting is that it enables any merchant, regardless of their activity or geographical location, to differentiate themselves and surprise us, thanks to work carried out by architects and/or designers. As a result, the shops are unique and make it possible to provide a high quality and personalised attraction for customers.

Have you created a label of some sort?

Today, more than 500 merchants are allied by a labelling program accompanying this initiative. You can easily spot them by a label displayed on their windows.

Can the public choose their favourite merchant?

In addition to recognition from their fellow professionals, the general public are also asked to vote for their favourite store as part of a special festive event held at Place Bellecour.

Is a list of stores covered by the labelling scheme available for viewing online?
