Merci (Paris, France)

In the 1990s, the Parisian store Colette reinvented retail. Merci is the new Colette, but with a charitable bent: The three-floor shop, which focuses on furniture and fashion, gives all profits to groups fighting child poverty in Madagascar. Designers like Marni and Stella McCartney help by donating exclusive pieces.
