Ladies,
Chanel on av Montaigne has been robbed this morning. Currently in Paris and it's all over the news.
4 armed guys came in a car and broke into the store, stealing 400,000€ worth of handbags before setting their car on fire right in front of the boutique.
This is awful, they're still at large...
Please be carreful with your next ebay or any consignment purchases, they may try to sell it online.

insane.. women want chanel for looks and men want it for money :x

everyone wants a chanel.

Ok that was pretty funny ;)
People are nuts!!! Why the heck did they set their car on fire in front of the store? To destroy evidence? Brother. Or to make some crazy statement?
We are going to Paris in May and you better believe that I will be purchasing a little something just to support Chanel!!!

They probably burned the car to destroy DNA evidence, and I also bet the car was stolen as well.

Chanel really needs to boost their security.

They actually rammed the doors with their car to force their way into the store. Then put the car on fire, they always do this in here. Probably to destroy fingerprints and evidences.

just read the story online... thanks for sharing.

i do have a question - as i rarely shop for Chanel in the boutique, mostly online or by phone... are authenticity cards kept inside the bags at stores or do SA's go get that from the back when you make a purchase?
