The venerable Belle Epoque complex on the banks of the Seine, with its whiplash staircase and stunning glass roof, for nearly a century the least pretentious, most chaotic and, to be suitably partisan about it, most useful of Parisian department stores, is no more.
Nor bolts, nor nails, and by the end of the year you won't be able to buy wood, paint, hacksaws, tape-measures or those handy things you put in the wall to stop the screws (which you can't buy either) from coming out.
