Arc'teryx is opening its first French flagship in Chamonix, the famous skiing resort in the Haute-Savoie department. The store will be operated in partnership with Jean-François Coquoz, a local retailer. The 100-square-meter store is located at 306 rue Paccard, in the center of the French town. The move is part of the retail expansion of the Canadian brand in Europe, and comes after the store openings in London, Zurich and Verbier. Arc'teryx is already present in Chamonix through the organization of the Alpine Academy, which attracts participants from more than 20 countries every year. The new store will be hosting its first event on Dec. 10, in the presence of three of the brand's testimonials - Thibaud Duchosal, Isabelle Santoire and Stian Hagen.
