The retail chain Les Galeries Lafayette is opening a store in Lille focused on fashionwear, its first new outlet in France since 1977.  
 
The retail chain is also launching a new children's fashion label, Cadet Roussel, from its department store in the Val d'Europe shopping complex in Marne La Vallée, in the Paris suburbs.
 
Galeries Lafayette will also open an e-commerce site in February 2008 dedicated to fashion accessories and luxury goods.
